Lecture: Citizen Youth: The Thin Line between Activism and Citizenship
Using literature review, media analysis, and interviews, this talk analyzes the socioeconomic backgrounds that shape urban youth participation in arts, socio-cultural movements and civic engagement beyond electoral politics, and in doing so - to understand the pathways to active participation in citizenship and activism - as well as how state histories and neoliberal conditions have created specific opportunities and limits for youth activist practices.
