Critically Researching Youth


Edited By Shirley R. Steinberg and Awad Ibrahim

Critically Researching Youth addresses the unique possibilities and contexts involved in deepening a discourse around youth. Authors address both social theoretical and methodological approaches as they delve into a contemporary discipline, which supports research with – not on – young adults. This volume is a refreshing change in the literature on qualitative youth, embodying the understanding of what it means to be a young woman or man. It dismisses any consideration to pathologize youth, instead addressing what society can understand and how we can act in order to support and promote them.

We dedicate this volume and our love of work with youth to the life and celebration of Eva Esther Buitenhuis. Eva defined the notion of youth, excited about every aspect of the universe; Eva was an investigator, curious and interested in life. As our muse, Eva constantly reminded us of the intricacies of happiness, of embracing the air, of moving with confidence, and of love. We celebrate her life and the impact she made on everyone she met in her 21 years; we miss her always. Eva Esther Buitenhuis, Amersfoort, Netherlands, 1994–2015.
