About the Project
These residency trends have been argued to reflect and contribute to the lengthened transition to adulthood of many contemporary young people. Yet, while concerns have been expressed about the capacity of young people living in the parental home to achieve adult independence, the implications for young adults’ health practices remain largely unexplored.
Taking an intergenerational and qualitative approach, this project will engage with young adults’ and parents’ experiences of adult children’s ongoing residence in the family home. Research will explore adult-child/parental relationships and their impact upon, and implications for, young adults’ health understandings, behaviours and autonomy.
We particularly welcome applications from graduates with a strong grounding in social sciences.
Questions about the project can be directed to Professor Penny Curtis [email protected] or Dr Victoria Whitaker [email protected].
