Who Controls the Party? The impact of licensing legislation on UK music venues within a socio-legal and cultural context.
My PhD will focus on the interrelationship between youth culture, government policy and law.
Specifically, this involves examining the interface between youth culture, the physical spaces where they consume music, and analysing the impact that regulation and legislation has had on the availability of these physical spaces. Analysis of licensing law and practice in the UK will be central to this research.
