Understanding Identity Construction from the perspective of young South Africans and Tracking the future: from school to where?: One

One Selohilwe's project comprises of two research projects namely Understanding Identity Construction from the perspective of young South Africans from Rural Communities (Tshambi, 2007) and Tracking the future: from school to where? (Selohilwe, 2007). The objectives of these projects was to find out how these young people feel about their lives, their worlds; what and how they think about schooling, post schooling and work in the context of the newly democratized South Africa where there is an assumption that opportunities are given on merit as opposed to the inequalities that existed according to racial differences during the apartheid governance. The research aims to find out if this is really the case from the point of view of the young people. It further aims to gain a perspective on how these young people construct their identities in the given context.

particularly interested about the fatherhood themes- may be worthwhile to read the book "BABA"
