Forthcoming Edited Volume from ICGC Research Circle and Beyond

ICGC, in partnership with the Office of the Vice President for Research, supports collaborative and interdisciplinary research circles involving ICGC faculty and students. Our longest running research circle on “Subjects, Objects, Agents: Young People’s Lives and Livelihoods in the Global South,” started in 2013 under the leadership of three ICGC affiliated faculty: Deborah Levison (Humphrey School of Public Affairs), MJ Maynes (Department of History), and Frances Vavrus (Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development).  

These facilitators are editors of a new book published by Palgrave Macmillan that includes contributions from members of the research circle and collaborating scholars. The volume is entitled Children and Youth as Subjects, Objects, Agents: Innovative Approaches to Research Across Space and Time. This book showcases innovative approaches to the interdisciplinary field of childhood and youth studies, examining how young people in a wide range of contemporary and historical contexts around the globe live their young lives as subjects, objects, and agents. It will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines, including childhood studies, youth studies, girls’ studies, development studies, research methods, sociology, anthropology, education, history, geography, public policy, cultural studies, gender and women’s studies and global studies.
