Tampere Centre for Childhood, Youth and Family Research PERLA

Tampere Centre for Childhood, Youth and Family Research PERLA organises an open research seminar on young people and intergenerationality. The concept of intergenerationality attempts to capture dynamics that build between people and groups occupying different generational positions, in various empirical and discursive settings, including notable contextual difference, yet also translocal and transnational links. In the seminar the theme will be discussed from the point of view of those who are deemed young people in the contemporary societies, be it by categorical definitions of age, social position giving, contextually negotiated identities, or other ‘placement’ in mundane communities or more broadly in the society.
