Fréquenter un centre d'hébergement à New York

Tactiques des jeunes s'identifiant comme LGBT

Seite 70
Clara Barrelet

This article is about young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender lodging at a shelter in New York City. As this shelter is not a «total institution» (Goffman), I explore the everyday lives of these youths, both in and out of the institution. I consider the ways these young people come and go in this institution as «tactics» (de Certeau) used to reach their goals. This perspective allows me to consider how a shelter can be a resource or / and an obstacle for its users.
