Negotiating Adolescence in Rural Bangladesh (A Journey through School, Love and Marriage)
Negotiating Adolescence in Rural Bangladesh (A Journey through School, Love and Marriage)
Description

About the Book

Negotiating Adolescence in Rural Bangladesh interrogates the experience of being young and becoming adult in rural Bangladesh, in a context of profound processes of socio economic change. Throughout South Asia, new educational opportunities and an increase in the age at which girls and boys get married are opening new spaces for young people to live the passage to adulthood. This book documents and describes the everyday reality of this changing gendered transition for young people in a rural area central to young people's experience: those of college and student life, friendships and relationships with those of the same sex and across sexes, and marriage and the issues involved in the choice of a marriage partner.

About the Author

Nicoletta Del Franco is a researcher with a long term engagement in Bangladesh where she has worked with NGOs since 1994. A D. Phil in Development Studies from the University of Sussex, she has also taught at Sussex and the University of Parma, Italy.
