Pauline Portefaix research project

My research aims to identify and analyse the uses that youth from disadvantaged neighbourhoods are making of numeric spaces, taking their spacial position, their trajectory and their personal story into account. This research will be conducted in a disadvantaged neighbourhood of Paris’s suburban area. This research project has chosen to target the digital identity of these young people and the link that it has with the processes of redefining social groups. The participation of those youth in a so-called “participation-research” and the expected effect of empowerment is also the object of the research because it is part of the process of redefining social groups.
