Edited by Mandy Thomas and Melissa Butcher

The book documents new findings on the contribution of migrant young people to Australia’s urban life.  The essays collected traces teenagers within a world of city suburbs and P plates, shopping malls and chat rooms and text messages.

Proud of their migrant backgrounds, they are moving away from explicit ethnically defined cultural groups to focus on their place in contemporary Australian society.  These young people through their every day activities are redefining what it means to be an Australian

The book is edited by widely published cultural researchers Melissa Butcher from the University of Sydney and Mandy Thomas from the Australian National University who together worked on the GENERATE project.
