Slippin’: Reflections on Participation at the Margins
September 26th 2011 | 4 comment(s)

University of Central Lancashire (UK) 4-6pm 4th October

 

The Centre for Children and Young People’s Participation at the University of Central Lancashire will be holding the above seminar as part of the children and Young people in Society Seminar Series.  

This seminar is a structured opportunity to consider the applicability of participatory theory with (very) socially excluded young people. It is drawn from the doctoral research experience of Simon Newitt, whose work with third and fourth generation African-Caribbean young men in St Pauls, Bristol, raised a number of issues for the applicability of much participatory theory. Slippin’: A Participatory Enquiry into Youth, Masculinity and Mental Health emerged from a Participatory Action Research project with six young men aged 15-21 between June 2010 and May 2011. The study explored the generative themes of respect, gang violence, drugs, race and community, before the research collective embarked on making a short documentary film on coming of age in St Pauls.

It will be held in Room Ha326, Harrington Building, Adelphi Street, Preston PR1 7DR, Session free, refreshments provided.
