Doing citizenship: the cultural origins of civic agency in the public sphere

Dahlgren, Peter LU (2006) In European Journal of Cultural Studies 9(3). p.267-286
Abstract
This text makes the argument that to understand the communicative skills and other competencies associated with active citizenship in the public sphere, one must analyse cultural circumstances within everyday life. Citizens do not magically emerge, fully formed and ready to participate, at age 18; they - and their civic skills - are shaped by a variety of factors in the private sphere.
