Redefining the Future: Youthful Biographical Constructions in the 21st Century
Leccardi, Carmen
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n113 p37-48 Fall 2006
The author connects the changing meanings of youth in contemporary western societies with the transformations in the representation of the future. The new youthful biographical constructions can be considered a central outcome of these parallel changes: they avoid long-term commitments and structure themselves around the idea of changeability.
