Sociology of Youth (2026LHS)

"Youth" is a sociological construct that operates at multiple levels: an individual young person, an attitude for being in the social world, and an institution. This course explores the two main branches of sociological research into the lives of young people: youth cultures and youth transitions. The course introduces students to a range of social divisions (for example, sexuality, rurality) , social institutions (such as, education, family) and social identities (including, subcultural, digital) that frame the experience of youth and draws on local, national and international examples to illustrate young peoples' negotiations of contemporary society.
