Transcultural Teens provides readers with a window onto the cultural and linguistic creativity of the housing projects, or cités, that ring Paris, showing how young people of Algerian Arab origins play with language in fascinating ways that subvert commonly held notions of intercultural animosity.

  • Provides solid, real-world evidence in the often abstracted theoretical debate on globalization and transnationalism
  • Offers detailed data on linguistic practices that is more focused than generalized anthropological studies
  • Includes the experiences of French-Algerian adolescent girls who remain largely absent from academic and popular discourse
  • Reveals the cultural richness and diversity of a population that is stigmatized and marginalized in a national context
