Generation Gap

It can be easy for this generation to believe that they are being exclusively targeted by the older generation at the moment, but it has become increasingly clear over time that every generation experiences this gap in some way.

Join hosts Joliet Morrill and Setareh Jalali tonight as they discuss the prevalence of the generation gap and its vast impact. They will be joined by Neil Howe, a a historian and sociologist specializing in generational differences and co-creator of the Strauss-Howe generational theory. We will also be joined by David Finkelhor, a sociologist known for his coining of the term “Juvenoia.”

They will be speaking to Lisa Walker, Associate Professor of English and Director of Women & Gender Studies at the University of Southern Maine; Oamshri Amarasingham, public policy counsel of ACLU Maine; and Gia Drew, program coordinator at EqualityMaine and president of the board of directors of Maine Transgender Network.
