'Normally I should belong to the others': Young people's gendered transcultural competences in creating belonging in Germany and Canada

Schmitt, Irina LU (2010) In Childhood 17(2). p.163-180
Abstract
Young people create differentiated models of belonging. Their strategies reflect contexualized competences - the capacity to understand and negotiate the influence of national frameworks in specific situations. Theories that understand belonging as processual and intersectional offer useful frameworks with which to analyse this. This article uses data from empirical research with young people in a German secondary school and a Canadian junior high school to highlight young people's situated competences and their critique of the respective frameworks of belonging.
