In welke stad je ’s avonds ook rondwandelt, overal zie je jonge mensen uitgaan, plezier maken en drinken. In de latere uurtjes levert deze mix van jongeren en alcohol vaak dronken en zelfs alarmerende taferelen op. Vrouwen gaan op zo’n momenten op zoek naar het soms wankele evenwicht tussen plezier en controle. "The practices and aesthetics of young women drinking and getting drunk provoke an array of responses. Influenced by psychoanalytic theory, this article explores the negotiation of ambivalent drinking identities centred around ideas of ‘correct’ gendered practices and imaginations, based upon empirical research in Reading (UK) and Groningen (the Netherlands?". (Please note this is not a direct translation of the above abstract).
