DIVERSIDADE, EDUCAÇÃO E INFÂNCIA: REFLEXÕES ANTROPOLÓGICAS

 DIVERSIDADE, EDUCAÇÃO E INFÂNCIA: REFLEXÕES ANTROPOLÓGICAS
Antonella Maria Imperatriz Tassinari; José Nilton de Almeida; Nicanor Rebolledo Resendíz (ORG.)
Há uma tendência em associar educação, infância, adolescência, produção e circulação de conhecimentos com os espaços e tempos da escola. É como se educação escolar, seus métodos de ensino e aprendizagem, seus pressupostos sobre desenvolvimento infantil, seus conteúdos e diretrizes curriculares, seus tempos e ritmos englobassem e subsumissem outras formas de educar, de produzir e transmitir conhecimentos, de promover o bom desenvolvimento das crianças. Os autores desta coletânea estão atentos para formas de vivenciar a infância e a adolescência e para modos de produção e circulação de conhecimentos para além da escola.
Fruto de uma interlocução interdisciplinar desenvolvida por pesquisadores das áreas da Pedagogia, Educação Física, História, Psicologia e Antropologia, esta coletânea se constrói a partir de um viés antropológico, tanto nas referências conceituais quanto na metodologia de pesquisa, privilegiando o trabalho etnográfico.

Take Action Now: Stop the Arrest and Detention of Palestinian Children



Every year 500 to 700 Palestinian children, including some as young as 6 years old, are arrested and detained by Israeli authorities. The vast majority are held for minor offenses like throwing stones at heavily armored jeeps or soldiers. The children are routinely taken from their homes in the middle of the night, blindfolded and handcuffed, and denied access to lawyers or their parents.

International human rights monitors have documented that Israeli investigators have attained confessions (often false) from Palestinian children through the use of solitary confinement, beatings, withholding food and threatening children with torturing their fathers and raping their mothers and sisters. These practices are inhumane, against international human rights law, and must stop immediately.

Stand with us now. Demand an end to the arbitrary arrest, detention and physical and psychological abuse against Palestinian children by Israeli authorities. Call for criminal investigations of those responsible for violations of international human rights law.

Brasil. Atlas do Desenvolvimento Humano. Regiões Metropolitanas

Prezad@s:

Acessem o Atlas do Desenvolvimento Humano nas Regiões Metropolitanas, resultado da parceria entre PNUD, IPEA e Fundação João Pinheiro. Agora, tal produção traz a desagregação de dados do Índice de Desenvolvimento Humano Municipal por Unidades de Desenvolvimento Humano (UDHs), que são áreas menores que bairros nos territórios mais populosos e heterogêneos.
Nos casos de municípios de regiões metropolitanas em que a população é insuficiente para desagregações estatísticas, as áreas das UDHs são iguais a municípios inteiros.

Exemplo: Em Manaus, a UDH de pessoas mais abastadas no município tem renda familiar 47 vezes maior que a UDH de faixa de renda da população menor. A desigualdade agora é mostrada, ao contrário de antes que tínhamos somente a agregação na escala municipal e valores médios do município.

Acesse o Atlas Brasil de IDHM onde podem ser feitas pesquisas e consultas sobre IDHM por Município, Estado, Região Metropolitana e, agora, também em Unidade de Desenvolvimento Humano.

New book: Pathways to Peace

MIT Press just released a new book Pathways to Peace: The Transformative Power of Children and Families

Overview: Can more peaceful childhoods promote a culture of peace? Increasing evidence from a broad range of disciplines shows that how we raise our children affects the propensity for conflict and the potential for peace within a given community. In this book, experts from a range of disciplines examine the biological and social underpinnings of child development and the importance of strengthening families to build harmonious and equitable relations across generations. They explore the relevance to the pursuit of peace in the world, highlight directions for future research, and propose novel approaches to translate knowledge into concrete action.

Margaret Peacock to discuss her recent book, Innocent Weapons: The Soviet and American Politics of Childhood in the Cold War


Innocent Weapons: The Soviet and American Politics of Childhood in the Cold War, recently published in the New Cold War History series at The University of North Carolina Press, edited by Odd Arne Westad Innocent Weapons is a transnational history of the image of the child from 1945 to 1968. It explores the abundance of childhood images that Soviet and American politicians, propagandists, and protesters manufactured for the purpose of building international and domestic consensus for the Cold War. It examines how these efforts ironically led to a collapse of that consensus in the late 1960s as well as a fundamental shift in American and Soviet understandings of childhood. The book argues that leaders and propagandists in the United States and the Soviet Union used images of children in comparable ways to rally their populations behind their domestic and international policies, to pursue popular consensus, and to ensure the preservation of public order. When one reads the story of the Cold War through the lens of the child’s image, the ideological differences that seemingly differentiated the Eastern Bloc from the Western Sphere are tempered by the revelation that Soviet and American leaders and propagandists were in fact engaging in similar visual and rhetorical projects in order to sell a war, to preserve power, to justify policy, and to maintain order. These portrayals, which span the ideological and geographic boundaries of the conflict, reveal a story in which the producers of these images had more in common with each other than they did with their intended audiences. By viewing the Cold War as a dialectic between those who owned the means of image production and the intended consumers of those images, this story suggests that we must reexamine our previous understandings of the divides that defined the war itself.

25 years of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC): The relevance of children’s rights in a higher education context

It is 25 years this November since the UNCRC was internationally agreed. Join us to celebrate and reflect upon the UNCRC, children’s rights, and higher education:
· What is the place of a children’s rights perspective in developing professional and academic practices?
· How does a children’s rights perspective challenge our assumptions as students, lecturers and researchers in higher education?
· Should higher education be taking more account of children’s perspectives?

Speakers include:
· Dr. Afua Twum Danso Imoh, Lecturer in the Sociology of Childhood at the University of Sheffield and co-editor of the recent book Children’s Lives in an Era of Children’s Rights: The Progress of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in Africa.
· Professor Priscilla Alderson, Professor Emerita of Childhood Studies at the Institute of Education. Her work on children’s competence, wisdom and rights has been widely published.
· Professionals from educational, legal, and NGO sectors, who are or were studying at the Institute of Education. They will reflect on how children’s rights perspectives have informed their own work and studies.

Please come and join the dialogue!

Date: 19th November 2014
Time: 6-8pm, followed by refreshments and reception
Place: Committee Room 1, Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London

Shaping Childhoods through Death in Children's Literature and Film




The focus of IRSCL 2015 is “Creating Childhoods: Creation and (Re)-Interpretation through the Body, Histories and the Arts.” A panel is being formed to consider the powerful and significant connection between the Congress’s theme and that of death in children’s literature and film. How can what is absent be made present? How can silence, void, and emptiness be represented on the page and/or screen? What are the implications of narratives about children who disappear? What is the child's agency as a site of inscription of childhoods as these childhoods relate to death? Why and how are new childhood(s) created from these inscriptions? How does a binary of children's and adult literature emerge and operate when treating death in children’s literature? These – and other – questions will be addressed.

For more information on the Congress, please refer to http://www.worcester.ac.uk/discover/irscl-22nd-biennial-congress-august-2015.html If you are interested in being a participant on this panel, please contact Lesley Clement, lclement@lakeheadu.ca with a 75-100 word proposal and short bio by 31 October 2014.

Resumo

Na contemporaneidade ainda persiste a concepção de que existem diferentes comportamentos esperados para homens e mulheres. A partir de uma sociedade que se constituiu através da cultura de superioridade dos homens sobre as mulheres sob a égide do patriarcado, uma série de impedimentos culturais em termos de mobilidade, comportamento, linguagens, roupas e afinidades foram estabelecidos para diferenciar o gênero masculino e feminino, com base unicamente na diferença entre os sexos. O que ocorre, no entanto, é que o gênero é uma categoria social e não biológica, portanto está relacionado à cultura e à história. Na escola brasileira, a desigualdade de gênero ainda assume diferentes feições, ora estigmatizando comportamentos, ora normatizando corpos, ora permitindo um contato diferenciado entre meninas, meninos e as professoras. Elaborado a partir dos referenciais teóricos dos estudos de gênero, da Sociologia da Infância e da Ciência Geográfica, este artigo pretende apresentar algumas reflexões, mesmo que ainda de forma inconclusiva, relacionadas à desigualdade de gênero presente em uma instituição de Educação Infantil no município de Niterói, no Estado do Rio de Janeiro.

5th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Emotional Geographies

5th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Emotional Geographies
10-12 June 2015, Edinburgh (UK)
http://emotionalgeographiesconference.wordpress.com/

Session: Relational geographies of emotions/affects, childhood and youth

Convenors: Matej Blazek (Loughborough University, UK), John Horton (University of Northampton, UK), Peter Kraftl (University of Leicester, UK)

Abstracts are invited for a session exploring intersections between emotional/affective geographies and geographies of childhood and youth, with a focus upon theorising and exemplifying the multiple forms of relationality that might characterise those intersections.

Geographers working with children and young people have often researched and written about emotions and/or affects. Indeed, many ‘children’s geographers’ have also contributed significantly to the burgeoning transdisciplinary field of ‘emotional geographies’. For example, the work of children’s geographers has often been characterised by: an empirical focus upon children and young people’s emotional experiences of diverse everyday spaces; a sustained commitment to extending feminist, psychological, participatory, critical, hybrid, or nonrepresentational modes of thinking-writing-researching emotions and affects; and a critical concern with normative, emotive constructs of childhood and youth (as loved (‘angels’) or despised (‘devils’); as feared or feared-for; as cared-for or cared about; as loci for contemporary societal hopes and panics).

In this session, we seek to develop the focus on relationality in emotional and affective geographies of children and youth, building on Bondi’s (2005) seminal paper and later work on geographies of emotions and affect, within and outside the sub-field of children’s geographies (Blazek and Windram-Geddes 2013). In this context, we would welcome proposals for papers (15 minutes duration) from diverse conceptual positions and international contexts, which address one or more of the following themes and explore intersections between emotions/affect and childhood/youth and between work on ‘children’s’ and ‘emotional’ geographies:

·       Relationalities of emotions/affects, cognition and practices (e.g. Blazek 2013);
·       More-than-human and more-than-social relationalities of emotions/affects (e.g. Kraftl 2013);
·       Adults’ emotions towards children, and/or vice versa (e.g. Philo 2011);
·       The articulation of emotions and/or affective atmospheres in the design, control and manipulation of spaces of/for childhood (e.g. Kraftl and Adey 2008);
·       The importance of emotions/affects in constituting (bio)politics of/for childhood (e.g. Lee 2013);
·       The deployment of emotions/affects in attempts to oppose, subvert, twist or produce childhoods ‘other’ to perceived mainstreams (with particular emphasis upon child-adult affiliations);
·       The processual and sociotechnical constitution of emotions/affects;
·       Emotions/affects and power relations, exclusions, regulations and governmentality in children’s and young people’s lives (e.g. Gagen 2014);
·       Ways of relating: methodological and conceptual innovation in articulating relational emotions/affects (including cross-disciplinary collaborations);
·       Temporality and ongoingness of emotions/affects in relation to growing up, young (age)ing, family or intergenerationality (e.g. Horton and Kraftl 2006);
·       Emotional geographies of familial relations (e.g. Harker and Martin 2012), friendships (Bunnell et al 2012) or popular (sub-)cultural identities (Horton 2012);
·       Relational dynamics of emotional and/or affecting experiences of fieldwork relating to childhood and youth (e.g. Horton 2008, Hadfield-Hill and Horton 2014).



Please send abstracts (300 words max) by 11th November 2014 to all three convenors:

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the international conference:

http://congress.utu.fi/fragile2015/cfp.php

August, 19-20, 2015, University of Turku, Finland

Keynote speakers:
Maria Nikolajeva, Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge
Sally Shuttleworth, Professor, Faculty of English Language and Literature and St Anne's College University of Oxford
Valerie Walkerdine, Distinguished Research Professor, Cardiff University

Organizers:
Research project "Fragile Subjects: Childhood in Finnish Literature and Medicine, 1850s-2000s" (Academy of Finland) & Finnish Literature, University of Turku
http://www.utu.fi/en/units/hum/units/finnishliterature/research/fragile_subjects/Pages/home.aspx

CALL FOR PAPERS

We warmly welcome you to this international and multidisciplinary conference on childhood in literature, arts and medicine, particularly the "psy" sciences. The conference addresses the idea and historicity of childhood; its changing meanings and notions in modernity and postmodernity. It aims at tracing discourses and representations that construct particular norms and ideals of childhood, as well as counter-images of normative notions of childhood. We warmly invite scholars from a broad range of disciplines and fields of research, who are interested in the cultural and medical production of childhood(s).

Scientists and writers have been riddling the mystery of the child, and an increasing army of child professionals keep producing knowledge on children and childhood today. Children have become valuable and fragile subjects of the modern era, and childhood can be understood as an essential node of modernity. Childhood has also established itself as a part of our modern understandings of ourselves - our autobiographies. In postmodernity, childhood has not lost its fragile nature, but perhaps its freedom. After the Second World War, new psychological theories, safety consciousness, and anxiety about sexual danger have led to an emphasis on the safety of the home, limiting particularly children's physical freedom, at least in some contexts. In the contemporary world, the child is seen as knowing rather than ignorant, yet children are under constant surveillance from the day they are born. Twentieth-century cultural, societal and medical obsession with children, tend to focus on problems (e.g. eating disorders, behavioral/mental problems, substance abuse, violence), reflecting discourses of protection and innocence but also control and moral panics. Nevertheless, the imaginative world of fiction and arts may offer an escape from social expectations in providing alternative representations of children and childhood.

Papers (20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes discussion) may be historically oriented or look at contemporary settings, taking up the following or related questions:

- How has modern childhood been constructed in different cultural and scientific discourses? What are the changes and continuities?
- What kind of child figures can be found in fiction, visual culture, media, and life narratives?
- In what ways has the mind of the child gained attention in both medicine, particularly the "psy" disciplines, and in arts?
- How are intersections of gender, class, race, and ethnicity played out in constructions of childhood?
- Fears and threats connected to contemporary or past childhoods?
- How should we understand the role of the child sciences?
- What is the role of childhood in constructions of adulthood?
