    Abstract

    This paper explores the universality of processes of cultural change by comparing identity narratives of young people living in periods of intense social and personal transformation in India and Australia. The responses of Indian youth to economic liberalisation in that country and the generational experiences of young people from migrant backgrounds in Sydney highlights that, despite different contexts, common responses to change appear in the processes of identity re‐evaluation and in the creation and consumption of strategies of identity. These processes revolve around the tensions of difference and continuity, managing hybridity and the reconciliation of ‘being in‐between’.
