Youth Identity, Generational Change & Education
Making Futures is a qualitative study of young people’s journeys through the senior years of secondary schooling and into the world beyond. It explores how young people navigate their educational, social and familial worlds, and imagine and work toward their futures. The project seeks to gain insights into perceptions of gender relations and perspectives on diverse forms of social issues and differences. It takes a cross-generational and comparative approach: comparing these young people’s perspectives with their parents’ recollections of their own educational experiences, as well as with those of an earlier generation in a similar study.
