Organized by the Centre for Culture, Identity and Education and sponsored by the University of Cambridge, UK

Poster Program

The Youth Research Symposium showcased the role of interdisciplinary research in rethinking conceptualizations of ‘marginalized’ youth identity’, debates on youth subcultures versus post-subcultures, issues of gender, sexuality and social exclusion, and the history of policing and surveillance of young bodies over time and across national spaces.  In particular, it sought to understand more fully how ideas about childhood and new youth identities have been generated and framed in different temporal, cultural and spatial contexts. The symposium also explored how the formation of new youth cultures may function, and to what degree, both as a response to, and a complex connection between, the macro and micro cultural forces of social and temporal change in the late 20th century and early 21st century.
