What is possible when youth are asked to engage in the discourse about what is meant by “adolescence”? Our May reading for Marginal Syllabus describes what happens when educators and youth partner together to explore historically situated views of adolescence. This article by Sophia Sarigianides details the ways in which one educator helped familiarize students with the genealogy of adolescence, understand the ways that discourses around adolescents/adolescence function in the world, question the implications of these discourses for themselves and their peers, and explore the possibilities for performance and taking action.
