250191 Critical Youth Studies: Methodologies for Research with Youth (S) (SoSe 2018)

Inhalt, Kommentar

This seminar is for students interested in humanizing approaches to youth research. The course is an introduction to critical youth studies with a focus on theoretical tools drawn from decolonial and critical race theory, and how to devise methodological approaches that align with these theoretical approaches.

This seminar addresses the relationship between theory and methodology in the context of conducting research with youth (rather than about youth). We explore the ethics and politics of knowledge production when working with young people. Questions related to inequality, race, gender, nation, and colonialisms animate our discussions. We consider the research process from the creation of a research question, research design, methods, data analysis, knowledge sharing, and beyond. This seminar emphasizes participatory approaches, especially youth participatory action research (yPAR), and theories of change.

Each week we will analyze and discuss (in English) one reading (also in English) from the field of critical youth studies. One class will be devoted to research methods training that will help you complete your assignment for this seminar.

Perfect English is not required! Familiarity with these theoretical frameworks or experience with youth research is also not required. An ability to read and discuss academic texts in English and a willingness to engage even when you do not understand everything will produce the best results in this seminar. You should also know that while we will explore key concepts such as the social construction of race and the ongoing relevance of colonization, we will not debate the validity of these concepts. The seminar will be organized around principles of shared knowledge production and mutual accountability for sustaining a space that is conducive to collaborative analysis.

Konkretisierung der Anforderungen

Assignment Options (these are in-progress and subject to change - email me if you have questions):

1. An analysis of a published research study or educational program involving youth. Your essay will (a) draw on the readings to offer a critique of the research study; and (b) re-design the study using principles learned in the course (2000 words).

2. A 20-minute Theatre of the Oppressed performance that involves audience members and that can be performed either during class or at the Faculty of Educational Science as a planned or impromptu theatre event to highlight issues from this course that you feel are important. You will work in a group of 2-3 people and submit a reflection that includes: (a) the design of your theatre piece, the question/problem you are highlighting, and your rationale for using theatre as your medium to address this problem; (b) your theory of change – what transformation do you hope to provoke with your theatre performance, how, and why does it matter?; and (c) a 1200-word reflection on your experience of performing your theatre with an active audience and your feelings about the outcomes in relation to your theory of change.

3. A portfolio that critiques images of youth from mainstream media, social media, and/or advertising. Your portfolio will include: (a) 6-8 images with a 250-500-word analysis of each image that draws from course concepts; (b) an introduction and conclusion that links the images.
