In the Lent and Easter terms of this academic year (2009-2010) Maria Nikolajeva and Mary Hilton will be holding an interdisciplinary discussion group on teenage life. We hope to draw out in-depth discussion on the ways that the second decade of life is characterised by physical changes to the body and brain, the differential nature of teenage experience, and the wide-ranging ways experience and existence is represented and enacted in Young Adult fictions, in theatre, school, home and politics. Our overall ground plan is very capacious at this stage as we are hoping to involve a range of members of the faculty with a view to feeding ideas into the forth-coming Faculty conference The Emergent Adult (September 3-5, 2010). The discussion group will be held throughout Lent and Easter terms on every third Monday late afternoon 5- 6.30pm starting Monday 18th January. Each session will be led by a discussant who will address a key reading which will be circulated beforehand to participants. This might be an important article or chapter that has informed or changed the discussant’s outlook or work in progress by the discussant.
