The influence of race, class and citizenship status on adolescence was the focus of Adolescents in the Americas: Negotiating Identities, Shaping Contexts in an Interconnected World, a symposium held on campus Oct. 3-4, enabling critical conversations on privilege, belonging and social capital amongst teenagers.

“The purpose of the symposium was to bring together leading scholars from across the country and beyond to talk about adolescence in Canada, the U.S. and Latin America,” said Assistant Professor of Sociology Ingrid Nelson, who organized the symposium along with Associate Professor of Education Doris Santoro and Associate Professor of Anthropology Krista Van Vleet. “We focused on the issues that adolescents face that cross national boundaries.” Read more about the Adolescents in the Americas symposium.
