Description

The course introduces students to the diverse realities of youth with a focus on youth in multiple contexts. Students will explore issues that place youth outside the margins of dominant society that often increases the level of prejudice and discrimination against them. Throughout the course students will engage in current debates within five key sections: Transgressing masculinities and femininities; Embodied identity; Youth technologies, spaces and things; Negotiating sexualities; Missing youth rights. Each of these sections will introduce diverse youth perspectives, issues, challenges and debates, and encourages students to critically consider the responses, models, theoretical frameworks used in youth work and human service sectors in general.

The inclusion of current research from staff and postgraduate students ensures that the course is “cutting edge”: It offers a comprehensive overview of the significant issues experienced by youth.
