Phenomenology of Youth Cultures and Globalization : Lifeworlds and Surplus Meaning in Changing Times Hardback
Edited by Stuart R. (Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada) Poyntz, Jacqueline (Carleton University, Canada) Kennelly
Part of the Routledge Studies in Social and Political Thought series
This edited collection brings together scholars who draw on phenomenological approaches to understand the experiences of young people growing up under contemporary conditions of globalization.
Phenomenology is both a philosophical and pragmatic approach to social sciences research, that takes as central the meaning-making experiences of research participants.
One of the central contentions of this book is that phenomenology has long informed critical empirical approaches to youth cultures, yet until recently its role has not been thusly named.
This volume aims to resuscitate and recuperate phenomenology as a robust empirical, theoretical, and methodological approach to youth cultures.
Chapters explore the lifeworlds of young people from countries around the world, revealing the tensions, risks and opportunities that organize youth experiences.
