Freedoms, Faiths and Futures: Teenage Australians on Religion, Sexuality and Diversity (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


How do contemporary teenagers experience and understand religious, spiritual, gender and sexual diversity? How are their experiences mediated by where they go to school, their faith and their geographic location? Are their outlooks materialist, religious, spiritual, or do they have hybrid identities?

Freedoms, Faiths and Futures: Teenage Australians on Religion, Sexuality and Diversity is a powerful insight into how teenagers make sense of the world around them. Drawing on rich data from a major national study, this book creates new ways of understanding the complexity of young people's lives and the ways they are apprehending and dealing with diversity, and how school education covering diversity best addresses their world.

This book argues that school education focused on worldviews is founded on ways of thinking about young people that do not reflect the complexities of Generation Z's everyday experiences of diversity and their interactions with each other. It argues that certain kinds of education in schools can play a significant role in developing religious literacy, tolerance and positive attitudes to diversity.
