Téléphone portable et paraître dans l’espace public : de nouvelles normes sociales chez les adolescents ?

Abstract : What are the intricacies of the social process setting up the use standards of the mobile phone in the public environment? To what extent does the object take part in self-characterization? Analysing both the evolution of the line between private and public lives and the notion of privacy involved with modernity will enable us to grasp how these new standards are produced and incorporated. As a tool for identity assertion, the mobile phone helps young teenagers become more autonomous within the family. It is a personal object integrated in corporal habits and routine and therefore it acts as a corporal extension. Customization – ring tones, logos – reveals true affection and shows the part it takes on a play mode in setting up looks and appearance. The interdisciplinary approach draws on the sociology of uses as well as the analysis of material culture from an anthropological angle. The study is based on a corpus made up of 51 semi-directive interviews of young teenagers and their relatives as well as an analysis of the media discourse.
