Mediatised Lifeworlds: Young people's narrative constructions, connections and appropriations

As from May 1st, 2018, the new interdisciplinary research platform "Mediatised Lifeworlds: Young people's narrative constructions, connections and appropriations" will be established for three years at the University of Vienna. Four faculties are actively involved in the research platform: Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Psychology and Faculty of Philosophy and Education.

The research platform focuses on the narratives that young people use to construct identities, form social connections, and appropriate knowledge and skills, and has a strong mission to support young researchers' projects.
