    • Abstract:
      Simply by being Kiwi males, young men in New Zealand are discursively positioned as drinkers. This study investigates how young men make choices along a spectrum of possibilities between accommodation and resistance towards drinking alcohol. This article focuses in particular on how those who resist drinking give an account of their choices, and whether there is a link between resistance and the subject positions that participants choose to take up. It also looks at how those participants who resisted being positioned as drinkers were able to reposition themselves in alternative masculinity discourses.
