Project Description:

The current generation of 16-25 year-olds in the United States has always lived in a chaotic, rapidly transforming world. The effect that this instability has had on this generation’s engagement with, and activism outside of, the political system has been profound. Many academics and pundits have analyzed the political state of young people, but this project will undertake a vast exploration and ethnography to mine for stories of young people and politics, in their own words, in the hopes of defining the political identity of this generation in a truthful way, and perhaps inspiring greater action and engagement.
