US academic who spoke on "youth" at the 1969 Bilderberg


In 1971 Kenneth Keniston developed the idea of youth. He highlighted some of the various themes and transformations he viewed as crucial in defining “youth” as a stage of life. In his book Youth and Dissent: A Rise in a New Opposition, he discusses the underlying differences between what is referred to as adolescence and young adulthood. He claims that adolescence is typically reflective of an incline in immaturity and a reflection in youthful behavior.

Keniston taught at Harvard University and Yale University before joining the MIT faculty in 1977,
