Conference highlights include keynote addresses from Peter Levine, Tufts University and Lawrence Cohen, University of California, Berkeley.
Age is a primary marker of citizenship. It is crucial to obtaining full political citizenship in a community and in shaping political, civil, and property rights. Yet the intersection between age and citizenship (or lack thereof) has varied across time and space. This is especially the case when thinking of how to define and identify citizens by “generation.” The Center for the Study of Citizenship’s 2012 Ninth Annual International Conference in Citizenship Studies will examine the relationship of generations and citizenship in the past, present, and future. It will explore how citizenship—membership in communities—is experienced temporally by age and how membership in a particular generation influences the experience and identity of citizenship.
