Research Interests

Dr. Tilleczek has been teaching about and investigating the social lives of children and youth for three decades. She is the SSHRC-funded Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Young Lives, Education & Global Good and Full Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University. Dr Tilleczek’s work examines the greatest challenges and opportunities for youth. She works across generations, cultures and places to understand how young people (now 2 billion; the largest global youth cohort in history) actively negotiate and experience their global/ local contexts. Her research informs new understanding about young lives, wellbeing and education. As founder (in 2009) and Director of the Young Lives Research Laboratory, Dr. Tilleczek works with interdisciplinary and international teams on four clusters of research across the Americas: 

  1. how youth and their communities negotiate the Anthropocene, 
  2. youth wellbeing in the Digital Age
  3. re-imagining education with/by/for youth,
  4. emerging theories and methodologies with/by/for youth.
