Episode 9: Youth
In this episode Dr. Tessa Diphoorn and Dr. Brianne McGonigle-Leyh are joined by Isis Freitas Vale Germano, a lecturer and researcher in the arts at ArtEZ, and Dr. Thijs Schut, an (economic) anthropologist at the Universiteit van Amsterdam, to discuss the concept of ‘Youth’.
In this episode they examine the concept of ‘youth’. Is the concept interchangeable with the concept ‘childhood’? What reasons are there to move away from the concept ‘youth’ and should ‘young people’ be used instead? And what role can art and theatre play in our understanding of youth?
