Event details

Living Precarious Lives has aimed to better understand emergent precarity as a student construct. At this event, the team will discuss the Living Precarious Lives project and highlight some of it’s key findings, alongside guest talks on current research from our colleagues at Deakin.

We live in a time of great uncertainty and anxiousness. About jobs. About health. About relationships. About the planet. About the future…

In theory, academics have understood this as ‘precarity’. And yet very little research has looked at how young people, especially those at University, make sense of this.

This project aims to hear University student’s voices. Working in collaboration with Deakin University (Australia), we have proposed a creative workshop, digital diary and interviews with students, to help Universities, policy makers and other researchers get a better sense of the challenges and opportunities for young people at University.
