Abstract

ca. 200 words; this text will present the book in all promotional forms (e.g. flyers). Please describe the book in straightforward and consumer-friendly terms.[Transforming Encounters and Critical Reflection: African Thought, Critical Theory and Liberation Theology in Dialogue is an interdisciplinary exploration of Western ideologies and their impact on Southern African cultures and societies. It brings together scholars whose expertise resides within the subdisciplines of decolonial and African thought, liberation theology, and postmodern philosophy to explore the intersectionality of Western hedgemony. Although broad in approach, each author’s contribution coalesces around an extended meditation on the question of what is liberation for Southern Africa (and the global south writ large) and from what is it being liberated.]

Abstract

There is currently much discourse about generations in the public sphere. A sequence of letters conflates generations and age cohorts born in the last few decades (generation “X”, “Y” or “Z”) as well as multiple categories are used to describe today’s young people as a generation that is distinct from its predecessors. Despite the popularity of generational labels in media, politics, or even academia, the use of generation as a conceptual tool in youth studies has been controversial. This Special Issue allows readers to better understand the key issues regarding the use of generation as a theoretical concept and/or as a social category in the field of youth studies, shedding light on the controversies, trends, and cautions that go through it.
