Even in these postmodern times identity continues to be the site of intense work on the part of youth and scholars. This symposium explored new ways of looking at youth as phenomenon, thinking about youth activity and identity formation, examining linkages with cultural policies and/or other forms of civic pluralism, so as to better understand contemporary realities of young peoples lives and future directions of youth studies.
