Since the 1990s, popular culture the world over has frequently looked to the hood for inspiration, whether in music, film, or television. "Habitus of the Hood" explores the myriad ways in which the hood has been conceived both within the lived experiences of its residents and in the many mediated representations found in popular culture. Using a variety of methodologies including autoethnography, textual studies, and critical discourse analysis, contributors analyze and connect these various conceptions."
