Past events

The University of Newcastle and the Consortium for Youth, Generations and Culture is holding the 3rd Journal of Youth Studies Conference to debate this future agenda, bring together new knowledge, and celebrate the journal’s 21st birthday. After the passing of much-loved founding editor Andy Furlong, and at the time of the Journal’s ‘coming of age’, it has renewed its aims and scope to explore critical perspectives on the way that social, cultural, economic and political processes and institutions shape the meaning of, and narratives about, youth, and how young people in their diversity engage with these conditions.
