Arguments with Peers: Negotiating the Past in the Present



How do youth2 produce and negotiate the meanings of the past when interacting within their generation? What discourses about the past do they draw on in order to construct their positioning vis-à-vis their peers? How is the past used to construct their identities as youth? In this chapter, we explore youth-centered interactions to capture a glimpse of peer-to-peer discursive processes of transmission of the recent past. This allows us to focus on youth as cultural agents in the process of transmitting the recent past.
