The Unacceptable "Flaneur": The Shopping Mall as a Teenage Hangout.
Matthews, Hugh; Taylor, Mark; Percy-Smith, Barry; Limb, Melanie
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v7 n3 p279-94 Aug 2000
Examines attitudes toward the role of the shopping mall as a place for congregating. Notes that adult attitudes reflect a discomfort with teenagers being in a place where they have no clear role, while teenagers transgress and question the spatial hegemony of adulthood, creating a "thirdspace" reflecting their place between adulthood and childhood and serving as a cultural outpost.
