The Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change faculty and staff were delighted to celebrate the release of the edited volume "Children and Youth as Subjects, Objects, Agents" by our YaSOA scholars and collaborators. 

The goal of this collaborative research circle, started in 2013, is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of faculty and doctoral students to explore the lives of children and youth in the Global South. The group was originally comprised of scholars whose main focus is the contemporary world. We have since expanded our thematic focus temporally and geographically to include relevant historical scholarship on all geographic regions. More specifically, the circle examines the ways in which children and youth are constructed as individual subjects in a various theoretical frameworks and development discourses; as objects of policy intervention; and as active agents who act on the world and make meaning amidst conditions of social and economic marginalization.
