"Intensive Program on Challenges to Identity in the Context of Globalization: Multidisciplinary and Multicultural Perspectives"

Who am I? What do I want to do my life? These kinds of questions are frequently on the mind of adolescents and young adults (ages 12-26) and refer to the central developmental task for these youth: identity formation. Members of previous generations who grew up in relative simple and uniform societies already struggled with identity formation. However, the relatively recent phenomenon of globalization has made the formation of an identity even more challenging as today’s adolescents and young adults live in increasingly more complex diverse societies due to the relatively recent phenomenon of globalization. The present course provides an in-depth focus on challenges to identity formation in the context of globalization.
This is a two-Week Intensive Course (6 ECTS) wich will take part in Vilnius, Lithuania, April 29 – May 12 2010
Teachers (international experts in the field of identity formation) and up to 25 students from five European countries (Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal, Turkey) will participate in a comprehensive two-week intensive program on identity in the context of globalization.
