CONTESTING YOUTH : Manchester Centre for Youth Studies lectures

MCYS

The recently formed Manchester Centre for Youth Studies (MCYS) at Manchester Metropolitan University brings together researchers from across the university – including the humanities, social sciences and education – to explore how the meanings, experiences and representations of youth have changed over time. (For more details see About MCYS).
