Registration is now open for this one day conference at The University of Edinburgh, April 21 2017
The University of Edinburgh’s Childhood and Youth Studies Network and the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships will be holding a free, one-day conference for youth researchers, policymakers and practitioners. Young People’s Transitions: Dimensions, Difficulties and Diversity seeks to explore, illuminate and interrogate the complexity of young people’s lives today and ask questions relating to the myriad factors that shape the youth phase. The conference aims to include delegates from the academic, policy and practice communities that engage with young people, and conference presentations will be given by PhD or early-career researchers from a variety of disciplines.
The conference will also feature two renowned keynote speakers: Divya Jindal-Snape, Professor of Education, Inclusion and Life Transitions, University of Dundee (Associate Director of CRFR) and Andy Furlong, Professor of Social Inclusion and Education, University of Glasgow.
The Call for Abstracts is now open to PhD or early career researchers for 20 minute presentations (250 word abstract). For more information about this Conference, including the detailed Call for Abstracts, see the Childhood and Youth Studies Network website: https://caysnetwork.wordpress.com/ypt/
