Chapter: "Youth, Relationality and Space: Conceptual Resources for Youth Studies from Critical Human Geography"

This book focuses on one of the most useful perspectives in social sciences: the lifecourse. It offers a distinctive approach to the topic, aiming to truly cover the whole of the lifecourse, focusing on innovative methods and case studies from Europe and North America to connect theory and practice across the social sciences. Featuring methods that are linked to questions of time, space, and mobilities, it offers both rich methodologies and practical details for those working in the social sciences as researchers or practitioners.

Intergenerational Space offers insight into the transforming relationships between younger and older members of contemporary societies. The chapter selection brings together scholars from around the world in order to address pressing questions both about the nature of contemporary generational divisions as well as the complex ways in which members of different generations are (and can be) involved in each other’s lives. These questions include: how do particular kinds of spaces and spatial arrangements (e.g. cities, neighbourhoods, institutions, leisure sites) facilitate and limit intergenerational contact and encounters? What processes and spaces influence the intergenerational negotiation and contestation of values, beliefs, and social memory, producing patterns of both continuity and change? And if generational separation and segregation are in fact significant social problems across a range of contexts—as a significant body of research and commentary attests—how can this be ameliorated? The chapters in this collection make original contributions to these debates drawing on original research from Belgium, China, Finland, Poland, Senegal, Singapore, Tanzania, Uganda, the United States and the United Kingdom Amazon
