Children, Youth and Media

The Children, Youth and Media TWG will serve as a Europe-wide network for researchers and educators interested in the analysis of all kinds of media- and communication- related activities undertaken by, for and about children and young people.

Despite having long been studied by media and communication scholars, it remains the case that children are often treated as something exceptional – on the one hand ‘special’ but on the other hand an afterthought, even forgotten in wider analysis of media societies or media processes or ‘the population’. This TWG aims to bring a valuable spotlight onto children and youth in a thoroughly mediated society, both drawing together and giving visibility to the array of existing theory, findings and perspectives and also stimulating new approaches and further research in this important area.
