Timescapes: An ESRC Qualitative Longitudinal Initiative

Young lives and imagined futures

Taking the future as its starting point, this seminar on 15 November 2010 investigated data on young people’s orientation to their future lives, gathered through a range of historical and contemporary studies, including the National Child Development Study, Ray Pahl’s Isle of Sheppey study, the British Household Panel study and childhood and youth projects within Timescapes.

As well as engaging with time and young lives, the seminar explored cutting edge methodologies for primary and secondary analysis of historical and contemporary datasets.
