Abstract:Drawing on sociocultural and critical approaches to language and literacy and taking aesthetic experiences to be characterized by the simultaneous stimulation of one’s senses and emotions, this project identifies style practices as a kind of literacy that is particularly illustrative of the inherent aesthetic nature of literacy. Further, it examines how style practices figure in to the identity negotiations of youth. The project features the reported style practices of three students in a high school in a small urban community, examining the ways that the communicative and aesthetic natures of their style practices contribute to their identity negotiation practices.
