Irish children and teenagers in a changing world

The national *Write Here, Write Now* project

Pat O'Connor

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides an engaging and unique insight into the experiences, dreams and hopes of the children and teenagers of contemporary Ireland Draws on a unique data set - a random sample of texts written by young people as part of a national millennium project - and applies a theoretical framework of core sociological concepts and discourses to the analysis of this data The first study to examine such a large data set and will fill a gap in the existing literature, making an important contribution to the field of sociology Extremely timely, given the recent launch of a national longtitudinal study on children in Ireland Offers a way to understand contemporary social problems by locating these young people's accounts within the broader context of cultural change and using them to explore the extent to which Ireland has become a late modern society
