Youth and Globalization (YOGO) is inviting submissions by way of a call for papers for its special issue on Youth and Varieties of Globalism in Asia.
About Youth and Globalization
Youth and Globalization (YOGO) is an academic forum for discussion and exchanges, a space for intellectual creativity on all questions relating to youth in a globalizing world. Its aim is to provide an innovative understanding of youth studies in a global context based on multiscalar (both local and global), multilevel (economic, political, social), transnational, and multidisciplinary approaches.
Drawing on both theoretical and empirical research, and in addition to and as a complement of the Brill book series Youth in a Globalizing World, the journal explores how young people relate to globality and its outcomes.
About the Opportunity
Youths have experienced globalization in a tremendously diverse way. This special issue focuses on the youths in Asia to highlight their unique experiences, responses, and reflections with the global forces. This individual encountering can be conceptualized as micro-level globalism, versus a large, structural global system. The main concern is that such globalism is highly diverse, and in this manner represents young Asian people’s embedding in the global social transformation as well as immersion in cosmopolitan reflections. Young people, ranging from college students seeking credentials from universities overseas, through manual workers in construction sites in the burgeoning cities, or the professional middle class joining the team of global talents in international firms, exemplifies varieties of global exposure which have substantial implications for both the origin and host societies. Even the conspicuous consumption of new young arrivals financed by their rich parents should be considered a novel phenomenon for better understanding the surreal avant-garde of a global generation.
Youth and Globalization invites contributions from scholars and advanced researchers that promote dialog in a way that resonates with academics, practitioners, policy-makers, and students as well as the general reader.
