Primary Instructor:

In this seminar, we will examine adolescence and the transition to adulthood from lifespan, interdisciplinary and cultural perspectives. We will focus on some basics, but the real emphasis will be on current issues in the theoretical and empirical literatures concerning the successful and less than successful negotiations of various transitions into, during, and out of adolescence. Out of necessity, coverage of relevant issues and topics will be selective rather than comprehensive. We will discuss, critique, and integrate a range of relevant conceptual and empirical readings, and comment on and assist in each other’s relevant research as appropriate. Learning goals include the following: to think broadly and critically about developmental conceptualizations and methodologies; to focus on linking theory, methods, and intervention/policy; to collaborate and critique effectively; and to explore, crystallize, and express your own informed views concerning adolescence/young adulthood and the field of developmental science in general, and concerning your own area of interest in particular. Requirements and evaluation consist of four components: class involvement (e.g., readings-based discussion), class leadership, empirical article critique, and final paper.
