'Youth' is a sociological construct that operates at multiple levels: an individual you person, an attitude for being in the social world, and an institution. We explore the two main branches of sociological research into the lives of young people; youth cultures and youth transitions.
You are introduced to a range of social identities (for example, sexuality, rurality), social institutions (such as education, family), and social identities (including subcultural, digital) that frame the experience of youth and draws on local, national and international examples to illustrate your peoples' negotiations of contemporary society.
