About this product
- DescriptionAs we experience and manipulate time-be it as boredom or impatience-it becomes an object: something materialized and social, something that affects perception, or something that may motivate reconsideration and change. The editors and contributors to this important new book, Ethgraphies of Youth and Temporality, have provided a diverse collection of ethgraphic studies and theoretical explorations of youth experiencing time in a variety of contemporary socio-cultural settings. The essays in this volume focus on time as an external and often troubling factor in young people's lives, and shows how emotional unrest and violence but also creativity and hope are responses to troubling times. The chapters discuss tions of time and its and its \u201cobjectification\u201d in diverse locales including the Georgian Republic, Brazil, Denmark and Uganda. Based on long-term ethgraphic fieldwork, the essays in Ethgraphies of Youth and Temporality use youth as a prism to understand time and its subjective experience. In the series Global Youth, edited by Craig Jeffrey and Jane Dyson
