posted on 2007-01-01, 00:00 authored by Nicola F. Johnson
This thesis explores the construction of technological expertise amongst a heterogenous group of New Zealand teenagers, specifically regarding their home computer use, which for many of them is their primary site of leisure. Drawing on Pierre Bourdieu's socio-cultural theories, the capital, habitus and field of the teenagers are described.
