Abstract

The overall theme of the 2018 TASA Conference on ‘Precarity, Rights and Resistance’ has particular relevance for understanding the everyday worlds of contemporary childhood. This article addresses the relevance of these three concepts in general terms in relation to children and young people in ‘developed’ societies and then specifically explores how this triple lens enables children’s perspectives and experiences of growing up in ‘post-conflict’ Belfast to be understood. The concept of ‘generagency’ is introduced as providing a useful conceptual tool for exploring the multiple and contradictory landscapes of childhood and how precarity, rights and resistance are experienced generationally.
