Young people’s temporal and spatial accounts of gendered violence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article is based upon qualitative research that took place with 89 eleven and twelve year olds in Glasgow to find out their understandings of men’s violence against women. The research found that young people’s position within childhood directly impacts upon how they conceive of, construct and understand violence. These positions within childhood, are constituted and experienced differently. Therefore young people’s understandings of men’s violence need to be theorised within a framework that illuminates the gendered, temporal and spatial elements of their accounts.
