Drawing upon youth studies as interdisciplinary (Sociology, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies and Anthropology), this graduate seminar applies a feminist cultural studies perspective to examine the intersections of race, class, gender and sexuality that (in) form youth cultures and youth debates across educational contexts. By troubling debates that position youth in opposition to adulthood (as objects of adult activity, "objects of socialization, " or "social actors" ) the class rethinks youth as intercultural allies and citizens beyond theoretical frameworks operationalized as identity, resistance, agency and marginalization.
