Abstract
This article focuses on television use of second generation Turkish and Moroccan youth living in Belgium in the context of their everyday life an family dynamics. By means of four in-depth focus group interviews with twenty-four diaspora youngsters, TV use is discussed in terms of TV ownership, the social viewing context of the home, TV related communication and power struggles over programme choices within diaspora families. This article particularly aims at a better understanding of how TV use articulates and shapes family relations, friendships and identities in the everyday life of diaspora adolescents and pays special attention to gender differences. Results show remarkable gender differences in terms of private access, the social context and power struggles surrounding television viewing. Television use of diaspora adolescents articulates and shapes hybrid identities, friendships and family relations.
