Dear colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to the special issue “Re-envisioning Youth and Childhood in times of Global Risks”, to be published in 2023 by “Youth and Globalization” (Brill).

The issue will welcome papers focused on childhood and/or youth experiences and cultures, intergenerational gaps, divides, or inequalities, illustrating ways in which they are dealing with different kinds of global risks, responding to their social realities.

Contributions are expected to explore the ways in which global risks have impacted their lives in spheres such as politics and citizenship, religion and spirituality, home and school, identity and cultural forms, health and wellbeing, employment, leisure, family, life course and transitions pathways.

Papers should consider gender, social class, ethnic-racial, or other kinds of social, economic, territorial, geopolitical, digital, and cultural disadvantages or cleavages.

Attention may also be given to protective and mitigating factors children and young people gather to face global adversities.

Drawing on both theoretical and empirical research, the volume intends to provide innovative insights into childhood and youth studies through the lenses of global risks, considering multilevel, multisite, and multidisciplinary approaches. Regarding the methodological approaches, scholars and advanced researchers are invited to make proposals that use qualitative and quantitative methods, combinations of both, or innovative and creative techniques that can shed light on how children and young people cope with different risks globalized today and/or in the future.
