Project Title: Young adults, drinking stories and the cult of celebrity

Young adults in Aotearoa/NZ regularly engage in heavy drinking episodes with groups of friends within a collective culture of intoxication to `have fun¿ and `be sociable¿. This population has also rapidly increased their use of new social networking technologies (e.g. mobile camera/video phones; social networking Internet sites such as Facebook and YouTube) and are said to be obsessed with identity, image and celebrity. This project explores the ways in which new technologies are being used by young people (and others, including marketers) in drinking practices and drinking cultures in Aotearoa/NZ. It investigates questions such as: how do drinking practices impact on young adults¿ identities? How are drinking stories and digital images (photos/videos) used in telling these stories online and who are they shared with? How does this vary across young adults with different ethnicities (Maori, Pacific Island, Pakeha), social classes and genders? We will investigate these questions through 1) focus group discussions with friends from different backgrounds, 2) interviewing young adults individually while they demonstrate their use of new technologies, and 3) analysing popular online drinking stories/images/videos. Results will further our understanding and provide new knowledge regarding young adults, drinking cultures and new media technologies in contemporary NZ society.
