A University of Lethbridge researcher has received a grant to support her research in the Institute for Child and Youth Studies.

Erin Spring, a post-doctoral fellow with the University of Lethbridge’s Institute for Child and Youth Studies (I-CYS), will build on her doctoral research as she embarks on a local project with First Nations young adults.

Her previous work honed in on Canadian youths’ responses to place and identity in young adult fiction. The results showed they were very aware of the role of place within their lives.

“I think this is because they’re at a time in their lives when they’re thinking about where they want to live, who they want to be, and what is and isn’t important to them,” she said. “Characters in young adult texts are often confronting similar issues, and thinking through these questions as readers of fiction can help young adults make sense of their world.”
