This ESRC seminar series will foreground the body whilst drawing up-on cutting edge research on: young people’s sexual health, sexual relations and relationships, sexual subjectivities, and sexuality education. It will discuss the role of media, popular culture, commerce and technologies in the construction of different understandings of the young sexual body.
The seminars will draw together two distinct groups: firstly: leading academics, early career researchers and PhD students working in the fields including child-hood and youth studies, health and social policy, critical social psychology, psychoanalysis, medicine, education and media and communication studies; and secondly: practitioners and agencies dealing with young people’s sexual health and education in the UK. A key aim is to foster partnerships, and creative dialogue, between leading academics and practitioners broadly concerned with young people’s sexualities and sexual health and well-being. Further, it aims to include front-line practitioners’ experiences and perspectives within this dialogue so it is a dynamic inter-active two way process. The overall aim is to facilitate the impact of applied social research in both policy and practice.
The series is a collaborative venture organised by the University of Greenwich, Anglia Ruskin University, Cardiff University, the Institute of Education (University of London) and Kings College London.
