For this issue on the Millennial generation, we decided to explore the concept of "emerging adulthood," the life stage from the late teens through the twenties, and interview the man who coined the term. A research professor in psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett first presented his theory of emerging adulthood in an article in American Psychologist in 2000, followed by numerous scholarly articles on the same topic. That article has been widely cited and its premise broadly embraced, leading to the publication in 2004 of his book, Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from Late Teens through the Twenties.
