Points de vue des adolescents garçons sur le « travail de l'apparence » sur les réseaux sociaux

Abstract : This study focuses on the corporal socialization of adolescent boys aged 15 to 20 and analyses the place of social norms of feminity and masculinity in representations of the adolescent body on social networks. The survey is based on an ethnographic approach combining participant observation (mainly at a first high school), thirteen comprehensive individual interviews (with student at a second high school) and a group interview at the respondent's family home with two of his friends. We explore the construction of adolescent male identity, with an emphasis on the analysis from the point of view of the work of male and female appearance. We thus reveal how young boys understand and appropriate gendered models, and how they construct themselves within social networks. The thematic analysis shows that the social representations of male respondents on the work of appearance are both sexually differentiated and variable within each gendered group.
