CFP: Youth Studies Conference in Ireland

Happy New Year! Looking forward to all the exciting events and opportunities coming up in 2009, I thought that some of you might be interested in the following CFP for an upcoming conference on young people and media markets, which will be held in Maynooth, Ireland this summer. Here are the details:
"All Change for Young People"? Mobility, Markets, Media, Models of Practice

An international youth studies conference at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth (NUIM)

Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th June, 2009

hosted by the Department of Applied Social Studies, NUIM

in association with the Research Committee on Youth of the International Sociological Association ( RC34 )

and

Youth Studies Ireland

Contributions are invited on all of the conference’s sub-themes (mobility, markets, media, models of practice) as they relate to young people. Diversity of cultural, disciplinary and professional perspectives is welcome, as are approaches which interrogate the key terms and concepts. Contributions which make links between theory, research, policy and practice are particularly welcome.

Deadline for submission of abstracts (no more than 200 words): 27th February, 2009

A conference website will be available shortly.

In the meantime for further information contact: maurice.devlin@nuim.ie
