An interdisciplinary research platform under the lead of Susanne Reichl and Ute Smit brings together a team of researchers based at four different faculties, who all investigate young people's mediatised lifeworlds from a number of theoretical and methodological perspectives.

They focus on the narratives that young people use to construct identities, form social connections, and appropriate knowledge and skills, and have a strong mission to support young researchers' projects. youthmedialife.univie.ac.at
