Associate Professor Peter Kelly from the School of Education is set to introduce his research on youth and education to a global audience.
Associate Professor Kelly, Deputy Head of School (Research and Innovation) in the School of Education, will represent his research and findings at several upcoming international events.
The first, a book launch in New York, will feature the presentation of his collaborative work with Annelies Kamp in a book called A Critical Youth Studies for the 21st Century.
The book explores the challenges and opportunities faced by young people in the dynamic 21st century, with ideas including the commodification of education and widening inequalities.
Associate Professor Kelly will also be co-convening a one-day conference in Leeds, with attendees from the UK, Australia, Europe and Africa.
The one-day conference, 'Morality, Austerity and Welfare State Futures', will explore topics surrounding young people, their social wellbeing and the sociopolitical landscapes where they reside.
Associate Professor Kelly will also be launching his book, in conjunction with Jo Pike, The Moral Geographies of Children, Young People and Food: Beyond Jamie’s School Dinners, at the Leeds conference.
