To illustrate what kind of interventions are needed, Dr Sharlene Swartz describes a new project in the field of youth studies that illustrates how theory develops, travels, unravels and regenerates.

In this way, Dr Swartz will showcase new theoretical ways of understanding Southern youth’s life-worlds (with its starkly differing material realities) and offers ways to avoid essentialising and homogenising Southern experiences.
