Abstract

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.
