Virtual Lecture Series

Youth on the Move: Performing Urban Space in the Global South

an online public lecture series that sets up

an interdisciplinary dialogue on the socio-spatial practices of the youth in the Global South across Africa to Asia​

from October 2023 - January 2024

The lectures in the series broaden theoretical debates under two key themes: 

The Time and Space of Youth: Situating Youth in Southern Cities examines the multi-layered conceptions of youth in a Southern context, and argues for alternative frameworks of understanding youth beyond terms like ‘boredom’ and ‘precarity’.  

Life on the Move: (Im)mobility and Daily Practices of the Youth approaches the translocal movements of youth from the perspective of everyday life.

We invite scholars from the diverse fields of urban studies, anthropology, sociology and culture studies to share their research and reflect on how these approaches enrich the understanding of youth living in the Global South.  

All sessions are free and open to public.
