CFP – Youth Matters: Moving from the Margins

Newcastle University, UK. June 8-9

The conference will facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation on youth by bringing together scholars from multiple fields researching young people’s lives and experiences of the social world. We will also explore the methodological, theoretical and epistemological challenges, strategies and innovations in contemporary youth research. To achieve this we will be hosting a hands on pre-conference methods workshop day.

We call for papers that speak to an interdisciplinary audience and will invite discussants to comment on each paper and explore the interdisciplinary links. By establishing links between various fields of youth research, we aim to highlight issues which are often side-lined in both academic and public debates, and move youth research in from the margins.

We invite scholars to send a 250 word abstract for consideration. The conference is free but places are limited.
