This research project focuses on music subcultures in Beijing and Stockholm, and comparatively examines the similarities and differences of music subcultures in these two cities. Using subcultural theory, popular music studies and cultural sociology, this project plans to use media discourse analysis and ethnographic fieldwork to explore the music subculture scene in different social contexts, and define the concept of "music subcultures" in an innovative and cross-cultural fashion.
