Multi-linear strategies for (re)presenting the complexity of young people in research
Ryan, Mary E. (2010) Multi-linear strategies for (re)presenting the complexity of young people in research. International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, 23(2), pp. 217-236.
Within the current climate of unpredictability and constant change, young people at school are faced with a multitude of choices and contradictory influences. In this article, I argue that (re)presentations of young people in youth research need to reflect the complexity and multiplicity of their lives and changing priorities, and I attempt to (re)present a small group of young people in this particular milieu. I illustrate some of the competing influences in their lives, and I outline some specific strategies that are useful for (re)presenting these contextual worlds. The strategies I advocate disrupt the homogenous representations of ‘youth’ as a developmental phase and instead reflect the diverse spheres of influence which shape their subjectivities and practices.
