Event description

Description

As young people across the world are increasingly confronted with a lack of work, housing, and social stability this talk will explore the emergence of youth political movements in two very different contexts. In 2014 the youth-led ‘Occupy’ movement for universal suffrage brought the eyes of the world’s media onto the city of Hong Kong; whilst at the same time in Scotland, the independence referendum saw young people – including 16 and 17 year-olds – politically mobilised as never before. Drawing on a study of youth leisure in Scotland and Hong Kong, this talk by Dr Susan Batchelor, Senior Lecturer of Sociology and Dr Alistair Fraser, Lecturer in Criminology (Sociology) at the University of Glasgow, will discuss these political movements, reflecting on issues of globalisation, social change and forms of engagement.

As part of CFCCA’s ‘Thursday Late’ series.

Open until 8pm on the last Thursday of every month, CFCCA offers an opportunity to enjoy an evening in the gallery or participate in a unique event, including performances, film screenings and informal talks. Entry to the gallery is free but special events cost £4. This includes a refreshing Chinese tea tasting experience, led by our partner, Tea Mandala.
