Crianças Nordestinas (Brasil) / Pensando a infância do ponto de vista da antropologia

(chamada para artigos)
Organizadoras: Emilene Sousa & Flávia Pires

Car@ Colega,

Depois de coordenar e participar de vários GT e ST em diversos eventos científicos nacionais que discutem a temática da antropologia da infância e da criança, detectamos uma carência em publicações de estudos antropológicos realizados com crianças Nordestinas. Ao mesmo tempo, descobrimos várias pesquisas em andamento ou recentemente concluídas que atestam a vitalidade do tema.
Gostaríamos, então, de convidá-lo a submeter um artigo para compor o livro CRIANÇAS NORDESTINAS, uma coletânea de artigos antropológicos. É preciso que o artigo problematize o que é ser criança no Nordeste, a partir de recortes locais: crianças indígenas, crianças urbanas, crianças camponesas, etc, com foco no trabalho de campo e na etnografia.

Especificações do artigo: Times New Roman, espaço 2, margens 2,5 (direita, esquerda, inferior, superior); 20-30 laudas; Prazo: Dezembro 2010.
Esperando poder contar com a sua valiosa contribuição,

Emilene Sousa (UFMA) & Flávia Pires (UFPB)

LSE Research: Opportunities and Risks for Children Online

Interview with researchers



With 65% of Europeans now online (source: ITU, 19/10/10), what effect is this having on children? What type of material are children exposed to through the internet? How do online risks compare to offline risks?

Funded by the EC's Safer Internet Programme, Professor Sonia Livingstone, head of LSE's department of Media and Communications, led a survey of 23,420 children and their parents in 23 European countries to systematically investigate the opportunities and the risks children are exposed to online. Their results are published in the EU Kids Online report, Risks and Safety on the Internet, available at:

Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education: An International Journal

DIME is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal focused on critical discourse and research in diaspora, indigenous, and minority education – is dedicated to researching cultural sustainability in a world increasingly consolidating under national, transnational, and global organizations. It aims to draw attention to, and learn from, the many initiatives being conducted around the globe in support of diaspora, indigenous, and minority education, which might otherwise go unnoticed.

DIME invites research from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives that emphasize the centrality of marginal voices and a peripheral gaze, and which draw attention to the complex interrelations between political, economic, historical, and social contexts, as well as the ways in which these various contexts shape educational policies, practices, curricula, and outcomes. The journal welcomes articles that ground theoretical reflections in specific empirical research and case studies of diverse locations and peoples as yet underrepresented within scholarly research and literature, as well as action or participatory research studies of exemplary or “best” practices.

Children's Voices. Experiences and Perceptions of European Children on Drug and Alcohol Issues


Report: http://www.crin.org/docs/ChildrenVoices.pdf

The purpose of this paper is to give meaning and insight into some of the key drug and alcohol issues that affect children from the perspectives of the children themselves. It is not to estimate the relative magnitude of a specific drug or alcohol problem or the numbers of children affected by it. Each section of this paper will be preceded by one or two key statistics and whilst the quotations that follow may highlight a need to develop more robust and detailed statistics on a key issue, the overriding objective is to give the children a voice.

CFP: Juvenile Delinquency in the 19th and 20th Centuries: East-West Comparisons

12th and 13th March 2011
Centre for British Studies
Humboldt University, Berlin

Abstract deadline: 15th October 2010

The history of juvenile delinquency has too often been written from an exclusively national perspective with little in the way of comparative or transnational studies. Particularly lacking are comparisons between the construction and understanding of juvenile delinquency in the cultural fields of East and West. How have attempts to define and problematise child and youth behaviours differed between Eastern and Western cultures? Have children and childhood been imagined differently in East and West? How have cultural constructions of the young affected the ways in which the behaviour of children and young people has been classified and understood in different societies? Is juvenile delinquency a peculiarly western idea?
This two-day conference seeks to bring together scholars at all levels working in a variety of fields including history, sociology, literary studies, geography, anthropology and ethnography, to discuss these and related questions. It is hoped that such discussions will lead to a more nuanced understanding of the ways in which concepts of childhood, youth and delinquency have been shaped by particular cultural contexts.

CFP: Fear and Safety in Children's Literature




*20th BIENNIAL CONGRESS OF IRSCL 4-8 JULY 2011*
*QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA*

Children's literature has always been responsive to the tenor of the times. Texts for children and young adults take up the social, political, and humanistic interests and ideologies of the past and present, as well as speculate about the future. Since the earliest fairy tales, children´s writers have given imaginative interpretation to the darker, riskier side of society, while also offering reassurance, hope, and celebration of the human spirit.

The Congress will address a range of critically important topics, texts, and theories related to the theme of Fear and Safety in Children´s Literature. Confirmed keynote speakers are: Professor Mavis Reimer, Canada Chair in the Culture of Childhood, University of Winnipeg; Professor David Buckingham, Director of the Centre for the Study of Children, Youth and Media, London University (UK); and Professor Gillian Whitlock, University of Queensland (Australia).

*Submissions for abstracts open: 19 July 2010.*
*Closing date:* *November 1, 2010*.

Eurochild’s 7th annual conference

Brighter futures - Building effective partnerships to end child poverty
Örebro Castle, Sweden
3-5th November 2010

Eurochild’s 7th annual conference is hosted by the Regional Development Council of Örebro.
2010 is the European Year against poverty and social exclusion. Child poverty is on the top of the political agenda. Eurochild – a European network of organisations promoting the rights and welfare of children in Europe – takes the opportunity of its 7th annual conference to look at how all stakeholders can work together to end child poverty.  The conference is co-hosted by the Regional Development Council of Örebro, member of Eurochild.
Children have the highest stake in an inclusive, prosperous Europe. Poverty and social exclusion are a denial of children’s rights, which can undermine their development and limit the realisation of their full potential. Ending child poverty is the most effective means of achieving long-term social cohesion and equality.

CFP: Childhoods Conference: Mapping the Landscapes of Childhood

University of Lethbridge, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
May 5 – Saturday, May 7, 2011
Submission: October 1, 2010

This multidisciplinary conference will engage scholars and practitioners from a wide variety of academic disciplines (including the sciences, arts, humanities, social sciences, policy studies, and education) in a consideration of the state of child studies, which has changed significantly in recent decades. Disciplines long dedicated to the study of the child, and childhood, have been recently revitalized and are engaged with the central problematic of what the child and childhood represent, including how these categories relate to others such as infant and youth. Figured in the plural, childhoods pose a significant crossroads for theoretical and empirical work on the nature of being human and development broadly construed.(...)

Violence and liminality: violent transitions from childhood to adulthood in a global context


June 18th

Seminar on Youth and Transition

Violence and liminality: violent transitions from childhood to adulthood in a global context

London

Moving from the beginning of childhood to the end of childhood, this seminar focuses on the role of violence in the transition to adulthood. The concept behind the seminar is "liminality" or the space between childhood and adulthood. As children or young people enter into this conceptual space, they are particularly vulnerable to being both perpetrators and victims of violence. For boys, especially, the peformance of violence or the ability to withstand violence or pain may be thought of as central mechanisms through which the transition to normative masculine adulthood is made. Through the exploration of these issues, the seminar considers how violence publicly marks boys' transition to hegemonic adult masculinity in the context of political violence

Speakers

Transnational family making: children, young people and migration (workshop)






Whilst children and young people are often at the core of the migration flows toward EU countries ("on the move", "left behind" or as main "rationale" for migration), they do not always receive the proper academic interest. This workshop aims to explore the migratory experiences of families (including children and young people) and to examine how policy-makers and service-providers assist children and families in this process. The workshop aims to bridge the gap between otherwise separated scholarships on immigration and emigration, by exploring the understanding of migration from home and host societies.
(...)
The workshop welcomes presentations that explore children, young people and parents own experiences of migration, but also papers that critically examine the policy provisions and social interventions aimed at children, young people and parents in the origin and arrival countries.

Deadline for online submission: 15 July 2010.

ESTADO, ESCOLA E DIVERSIDADE

Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Auditório 3
7 de Junho 2010, 14h30

Por toda a Europa têm surgido estudos que procuram aferir o sucesso escolar das populações migrantes. Para além dos contextos socioeconómicos e familiares que contribuem para justificar diferentes trajectórias escolares, impõe-se reflectir sobre o modo como a Escola, enquanto instituição do Estado, e os seus agentes, enquanto tradutores de orientações institucionais, vêem a diversidade que caracteriza actualmente o espaço escolar.
No encontro ESTADO, ESCOLA E DIVERSIDADE vão ser apresentados e discutidos os resultados do inquérito nacional realizado no âmbito do projecto com o mesmo nome, desenvolvido pelo CesNova Migrações, com financiamento da Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (IME/SDE/81861/2006).
Este encontro servirá também para olhar para Portugal numa perspectiva comparada, contando para o efeito com a participação de investigadores europeus e norte-americanos.

EUROPE: European Commission steps up protection for unaccompanied minors

06.05.2010 / News release

The European Commission has adopted an Action Plan to improve the protection of unaccompanied minors entering the EU. The plan stipulates common standards for guardianship and legal representation. (...)
The exact number of unaccompanied minors coming into Europe remains unknown. However, data from Eurostat indicate that in 2009, 10,960 unaccompanied minors filed applications for asylum in 22 Member States (excluding Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Poland and Romania), which represents an increase of 13 per cent compared to 2008 when there were 9,695 asylum applications.
The Action Plan is based on the following ten principles: read more here!

Children and freedom of expression in a nutshell

Freedom of expression is rarely part of children’s rights advocacy – at least as a stand-alone issue - yet it is critical for the realisation of all children’s rights (as well as for our work here at CRIN!). In fact, this right is a good marker for gauging perceptions of children in any society, because the extent to which children are able to express their opinions and feelings can show how much they are recognised as rights holders. And if children are restricted from holding or expressing opinions, or from receiving information through the media (subject to certain, limited, exceptions), how can they describe the ways in which their rights are being respected, fulfilled and respected, or, on the other hand, infringed? Similarly, organisations and media outlets such as CRIN must, in all countries in all regions of the world, feel secure in the knowledge that the information they disseminate will not be subject to unreasonable interference.

“Children coming alone as migrants should not be automatically returned” says Commissioner Hammarberg launching the “Human Rights Comment”

[21/04/10 10:00] “Every day unaccompanied migrant children arrive in Europe, but their needs are not always duly met. Whatever possible difficulties of integration and accommodation they might face here, a humane society should take their problems more seriously and avoid sending them back regardless of the consequences.” With these words, Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, published today an article on the rights of unaccompanied migrant children, the first of a series to be published in the “Commissioner’s Human Rights Comment”. The Commissioner observes with concern the practice of quickly returning children to new reception centres established in their country of origin. “Authorities in Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom are reported to be looking into the possibility of sending children back to such institutions in Afghanistan, Iraq or a couple of countries in Africa” he said.

Children, Families and the Migration Experience: Opportunities and Challenges

21/05/2010
Middlesex University, Hendon Campus
London, NW4 4BT, UK

In recent years new patterns of migration to Britain and other European states have emerged associated with, for example, EU enlargement. These have had diverse implications for family migration strategies. In contrast to historical patterns of migration which were generally perceived as involving long term or permanent settlement, this new migration often involves more transitory patterns of mobility.
Nevertheless, short term stay may be extended over time often leading to family reunion and family formation. The impact of this new migratory strategies, especially on children, is beginning to be explored by
researchers and to spark interest among policy makers and service providers as they respond to new needs, for example of new arrivals in schools. This conference will bring together research on a range of issues
relevant to this new phenomenon.

Specific themes will include:
* Current migration patterns, family strategies and family reunion
* Migrants from the new EU states
* The emotional impact of migration
* New arrivals and the transition to schooling
* Migration, education and parental expectations
* Language acquisition, language transition and bi-lingualism

Simposio Internacional: Procreación, Crianza y Género. Aproximaciones antropológicas a la parentalidad

13 y 14 de mayo de 2010
Sala de Graus - Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Organiza: GETP (Grup d’Estudi Transcultural del Parentiu) - GRAFO (Grup de Recerca en Antropologia Fonamental i Orientada) de la UAB
Comité organizador: Virgínia Fons, Anna Piella, María Valdés

El propósito del Simposio es difundir resultados del proyecto que está desarrollando el GETP (Teoría transcultural de la reproducción de los grupos humanos) y confrontarlos con los de especialistas de otros centros de investigación que trabajan en este área, con orientaciones teóricas distintas, fortaleciendo las redes de intercambio y contraste teórico. El principal objetivo se orienta hacia la presentación de diferentes formas de parentalidad humana y la discusión conjunta en la línea de la propuesta de definición del dominio analítico transcultural de la antropología del parentesco planteada por el GETP. Dicha propuesta analiza el parentesco como el dominio formado por los fenómenos socioculturales vistos desde la perspectiva de la reproducción del grupo a través de la regulación de la procreación, la adscripción y la crianza de los niños; así como por las relaciones y representaciones que se generan y se instituyen entre las personas implicadas en estos procesos.

Starlight and Shadows: Images of Lost and Othered Children in Contemporary Cinema

Seeking original articles for an edited collection about lost and “Othered” children in contemporary cinema (from 1980 to the present). In contrast to traditional portraits of sweetness and light, there is a large body of cinematic works that provide a counter note of darkness to the more common notion of the innocent and pure child. These films depict childhood as a site of knowingness, despair, sexuality, death, and even madness. Starlight and Shadows [tentative title] explores this filmic imagining of the dark side of childhood.
Lost children are involuntary wanderers who are victimized, exploited, abandoned. Children who are “Othered” are forced to the fringes of childhood, are ostracized, ignored, victims of colonization, or part of Diasporas. These children navigate their way through the world living in the shadow of happy families, in murky or threatening environs, or living a form of placelessness. They must depend on their wits or, in some cases, on otherworldly influences. They negotiate a darkness that negates the Romantic view of childhood innocence.
Submissions to Starlight and Shadows can include, but are not limited to, depictions of children negotiating race, gender, class, mental illness, forced migration, superstitions, peer pressure, crime, or other social and material conditions in which the film constructs a child character positioned outside the romantic notion of the child. Essays that take a child-centric approach, interrogate the idea of the Western romanticized child, or that draw upon multi-disciplinary theoretical frameworks including psychology, film studies, literature, women studies, and queer studies are encouraged.  Contributions should be academic in nature and follow MLA documentation.

Contributors please send a 200-500 word abstract, or, if complete, the full essay, a short biography, and complete contact information to Debbie Olson, debbieo@okstate.edu
Deadline for abstracts is August 1, 2010. Full essays are due no later than December 31, 2010.

Anthropology of Children Working Group (Seminars VU Amsterdam)

The Contours of Belonging: Legality, Race, Class and Generation in the US
Lecture by Dr. Irene Bloemraad (University of California, Berkeley) followed by discussion.
15 April 2010 – 14.30-16.30 hrs
Venue: VU University Amsterdam, Metropolitan Building, Room Z-113
Abstract: Of the more than 38 million foreign-born residents of the United States, roughly a third are naturalized US citizens, a third are legal permanent residents and a third are undocumented migrants without legal papers. The children of these people, if born in the United States, are automatically US citizens. Traditional accounts of political socialization expect that these children will learn about politics and civic engagement from their parents. But what happens when parents are immigrants, especially when their legal status prevents direct participation in the formal political system?

CFP (special issue): The Journal of Media Literacy Education

JMLE invites submissions for a special theme issue exploring the relationship between media literacy and digital media and learning. New norms of online participation are emerging as part of child and adolescent socialization. However, some scholars with interests in digital media and learning position their work at a distance from the practice of media literacy education, privileging the study of user behavior, social connectivity and participation and dismissing practices associated with message interpretation, critical analysis and inquiry, and communication skill development. In this issue, we are interested in exploring both the areas of disjuncture and areas of overlap, aiming to conceptualize new ideas that may fuel the development of both fields. Your work may be framed around scholarship and practice in education, media studies, cultural studies, or other fields.

CFP: Education, aspiration and socialization. Examining school effects on social mobility and health

American Anthropological Association Meetings
New Orleans, November 17-21 2010
Organizers: Jed Stevenson, Department of Anthropology, Emory University; Peggy Froerer, Department of Anthropology, Brunel University

This panel seeks to take stock of the contributions of anthropology to understanding the impact of school education on processes of socialization and on children’s aspirations in relation to broader processes of social mobility and improved health. It will serve as a forum for a comparative discussion of contemporary ethnographic research on schooling and its effects in diverse, cross-cultural contexts – both through school-based studies that document how formal educational institutions socialize children in relation to future forms of social mobility and health practices, and through population-based studies that elucidate contributions of school experience to later life opportunities and activities.

Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be sent to Jed Stevenson (egsteve@emory.edu) or Peggy Froerer (peggy.froerer@brunel.ac.uk) by March 25 for consideration.

CFP: Towards an Anthropology of Childhood and Children

International Conference
Towards an Anthropology of Childhood and Children: Ethnographic Fieldwork Diversity and Construction of a Field
March 9-11, 2011 - University of Liege (Belgium) 
Coordinated by Élodie Razy, Charles-Édouard de Suremain, Véronique Pache 
For decades, childhood and children were considered as a ‘small subject’ (Lallemand & Le Moal 1981). It is thus justified to wonder: ‘where have all the babies gone?’ (Gottlieb 2000) or: ‘why don’t anthropologists like children?’ (Hirschfeld 2003). Whereas interdisciplinary research centres and networks, Cultural Studies, courses, projects, and meetings on the theme multiply, we propose a critical overview of anthropological accounts on childhood and children. The conference will present how this field developed in social and human sciences according to different academic traditions.

CFP: Familles transnationales au quotidien

Revue Autrepart: ce numéro, à paraître en mars 2011 (1/2011), est coordonné par Élodie Razy (Anthropologue, Université de Liège) et Virginie Baby-Collin (Géographe, Université de Provence).

Les propositions de contributions (titre, résumé de 1.500 signes maximum) peuvent être adressées à autrepart@ird.fr jusqu’au 12 Avril 2010.

Dans un contexte marqué par l’intensification des migrations internationales et par leur résonnance sociale et politique, au Nord comme au Sud, ce numéro se propose d’articuler famille et migration à partir des terrains et des configurations les plus divers, et de réfléchir à la notion de « famille transnationale ». Il accordera une attention particulière aux travaux qui seront issus d’études de terrain et qui interrogeront cette notion soi au niveau des représentations et des pratiques des protagonistes soi au niveau théorique et méthodologique.

CFP: International Conference 'The doors of perception: Viewing anthropology through the eyes of children'

30 September & 1 October 2010 - VU University Amsterdam

This conference aims to bring together anthropologists who work with children as well as researchers from other disciplines to provide a platform for intellectual discussion, exchange of ideas, networking, and to offer opportunities for collaboration. The primary goal of the conference is to examine current developments in the study of children and to develop perspectives on how research with children can contribute to anthropological epistemology and theory. Central questions to such a reflection are:
1) What can child-oriented research offer to current epistemological debates and theory in anthropology?
2) How can anthropological research with children benefit from insights from other disciplines?
3) How can an anthropological, child-oriented approach contribute to the research of children in other disciplines?
The conference welcomes proposals not merely from anthropologists but also from scholars representing other disciplines (including but not limited to geography, psychology, sociology, history, and education). We invite such scholars to reflect on the possible cross-fertilization that does or can take place in these interdisciplinary encounters.
