In White Kids, Mary Bucholtz investigates how white teenagers use language to display identities based on race and youth culture. Focusing on three youth styles - preppies, hip hop fans, and nerds - Bucholtz shows how white youth use a wealth of linguistic resources, from social labels to slang, from Valley Girl speech to African American English, to position themselves in the school's racialized social order. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in a multiracial urban California high school, the book also demonstrates how European American teenagers talk about race when discussing interracial friendship and difference, narrating racialized fear and conflict, and negotiating their own ethnoracial classification. The first book to use techniques of linguistic analysis to examine the construction of diverse white identities, it will be welcomed by researchers and students in linguistics, anthropology, ethnic studies and education.

Recensioner i media

'White Kids, poignant, funny, and timely, shows us how adolescents work on identities in a racialized world with immense depth and precision.' Jane H. Hill, Regents' Professor (Emerita), University of Arizona

'A hugely anticipated book from one of the most articulate voices in 21st century sociolinguistics. Full of compelling evidence for how attention to language and social interaction can tell us so much (new) about youth identities.' Alexandra Georgakopoulou, King's College London

'... Bucholtz's conclusions open up new possibilities for further research and examination of the ways in which white teens choose and display their identity. Highly recommended.' Choice
