Reclaiming the night time economy: unwanted sexual attention in pubs and clubs

By: Fileborn, Bianca
Material type: TextTextPublisher: UK Palgrave Macmillan 2016Description: xi, 249 p.ISBN: 9781137587916Subject(s): Sex - Psychology | Crime - Sociological aspects | Young adults - Sexual behavior | Sociology | Gender expressionDDC classification: 158.1 Online resources: E-Book Summary: This book explores young adults' experiences and understandings of sexualised violence within licensed venues. Although anecdotally common, unwanted sexual attention in pubs and clubs has been the focus of relatively little criminological analysis. This text provides the first exploration of how and why unwanted sexual attention occurs in licensed venues. Using wide-ranging research from over two hundred participants, Fileborn argues that what 'counts' as unwanted sexual attention is highly context-dependent and situated within a complex assemblage of a venue's culture, environment, and community. Dealing with issues such as the roles gender, sexuality, space, and social belonging play in shaping young adults' experiences, this book recounts how young people make sense of unwanted sexual attention within a culturally complex, alcohol-fuelled, and sexually-charged environment. A thorough and thought-provoking text, this book will be of particular interest to scholars of criminology, sociology, and political science. https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/iimahd/detail.action?docID=4731712
