FRANK FUREDI
 
AT THE DANUBE INSTITUTE ON MAY 31ST, 2018
 
 
Acclaimed sociologist, author and social commentator Frank Furedi delivered a lecture on a major front in the ‘Culture Wars’, entitled: 
 
 
“The Crisis of Socialisation and the Disorientation of the Young: Lessons from the West”
 
 
Who is influencing children and young people? Society has become less and less able to socialise young people through imparting them values. Both schools and parents are often wary of exercising authority. In the name of being child-centric many experts question the value of discipline. Instead they rely on psychological techniques to raise the next generation. Educational institutions are frequently complicit in this and unwittingly undermine children’s independent capacity for resilience.
 
The outcome of this process of infantilisation of the young people can be seen at many universities, where the refusal to ‘grow up’ is now represented as a fact of life.
 
Frank Furedi, author of Paranoid Parenting, What’s Happened To the University, is a sociologist and social commentator. He was formerly Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent in Canterbury. He is author of 20 full-length books. His latest, How Fear Works: Culture of Fear in the 21st Century, is to be published in June, 2018 by Bloomsbury Press.  His books have been translated into 13 languages.
 
Frank regularly comments on radio and television. He has appeared on Newsnight, Sky News and BBC News, Radio Four’s Today programme, and a variety of other radio television shows. Internationally, he has been interviewed by the media in Australia, Canada, the United States, Poland, Holland, Belgium, Brazil, and Germany.
 
His articles have been published in New Scientist, the Guardian, the Independent, the Financial Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Express, the Daily Mail, the Wall Street Journal, the Independent on Sunday, India Today, L’Espresso, The Times, The Sunday Times, the Observer, the Sunday Telegraph, the Globe and Mail (Toronto), the Christian Science Monitor, the Times Higher Education Supplement, spiked, the Times Literary Supplement, Harvard Business Review, Die Welt and Die Zeit, among others.
