A Critical Youth Studies for the 21st Century – Professor Peter Kelly
This seminar will report on some aspects of the development of an edited collection to be published in 2014 as part of a series titled Youth in a Globalising World.
The collection is being edited with my colleague Dr Annelies Kamp from Dublin City University and comprises 34 chapters from contributors in North and South America, UK/Europe, the Asia Pacific, Australia/NZ
In that collection we ask, what might a Critical Youth Studies for the 21st Century look like? The collection will engage with the variety of methodological, theoretical and/or empirical challenges and opportunities, limits and possibilities such a question poses:
- After Marxism, after feminism, after the posts (structuralism, modernism, colonialism) have swept through the social and behavioural sciences what might a critical Youth Studies look like?
- In this after what might a critical Youth Studies do?
- What might it take as its objects?
- What might its project be?
- What might be its limits and possibilities?
The seminar will present a discussion of what we see as the context for such a collection and what it is that such a collection might contribute to ongoing developments in the field.
