    Scholarly fields are meant to be dynamic to accommodate new
    information that is infused with old. One of these areas is the
    notion, subject, subfield and process of street culture. Despite the
    frequency of its usage in the social sciences, urban planning, and
    selected areas of the visual arts, rarely is the term street culture
    defined and when it is, the definitions are often conceptually
    lacking. This article synthesizes current ideas about the study of
    street culture by examining six major questions that street culture
    researchers currently grapple with. The article outlines suggestions
    for improving scholarship in this field.
