Beschreibungen

This book contains empirical research from established and emerging scholars who draw upon interdisciplinary perspectives of space and place in order to investigate young people’s sense of identities and belongings in diverse international contexts.  The contributors aim to enhance our understanding of how theories of belonging are employed in the study of youth identity as these young people come to belong at a local, national, global, and even virtual level.  The collection draws on research in the rural, the urban, and online, showcasing key sites and communities that play a role in young people’s lives as they negotiate their sense of agency and sense of identity within the contexts of the locale.Identities, Youth and Belonging will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines including sociology, education, social policy, politics and geography.

Takes as its focus the ways in which young people understand and engage in their locales, spaces and institutions  Offers international and interdisciplinary perspectivesAdds to the youth studies canon through the exploration of underrepresented areas
“By focusing on space and place, the editors of this wide-ranging book have managed to find a way to grapple with structural concerns without losing the poststructural conception of identity as something subject to slippage and fluidity. It represents an effective way to consider the experience of groups of young people without framing their experience around stereotypes. This analysis disrupts established binary oppositional discourses around youth as either progressive and politically aware, or as self-centred neoliberal subject, reframing subjectivities as both individual and bounded by elements of a shared lived experience.” (Anna Carlile, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK)
