Abstract:
This collection focuses on issues of class and place in respect of young people’s lives. The contributions derive, at least in part, from a one-day British Sociological Association Youth Study Group seminar that was hosted by the Youth Research Group at the University of Teesside in September 2008. What is special or important about the social scientific study of youth? One answer is that the youth phase provides a privileged vantage point from which to observe broader processes of social change and social continuity (Furlong and Cartmel 2007, MacDonald and Shildrick 2009). If new cultural trends emerge or significant social developments happen, it is feasible that they will be seen here first or most obviously, among the coming, new generation of young adults. If ‘choice biographies’ replace ‘normal’ ones, if family or household forms become less standard, if well-known patterns of gender or class inequality loosen or become less familiar, it is likely that these changes will be observed first in youth; changes made by young people as they make transitions to adult life.
