Negotiating Transcultural Lives: Belongings and Social Capital among Youth in Transnational Perspective.

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology (editor)


Societies of the early 21st century are composed of many intersecting cultures, defined by status as citizens or recent immigrants and other societal hierarchies. Past-oriented segments of state populations decry the loss of essentialized national identities. What is lacking in this set-up of the debate is the young generation. This volume brings together European and Canadian studies in sociology, history, and cultural studies.
