Coming of Age in Times of Uncertainty

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Coming of Age in Times of Uncertainty by Harry Blatterer Book Resume:

Adulthood is taken for granted. It connotes the end of childhood, the resolution to the “storm and stress” period of adolescence. This conception is strongly entrenched in the sociology of youth and the sociology of the life course as well as in the policy arena. At the same time, adulthood itself remains unarticulated; journey’s end remains conceptually fixed and theoretically uncontested. Adulthood, then, is both central to the social imagination and neglected as an area of sociological investigation, something that has been noted by sociologists over the last four decades. Going beyond the overwhelmingly psychological literature, this book draws on original qualitative research and theories of social recognition and thus presents a first step towards filling an important gap in our understanding of the meaning of adulthood.

Coming of Age the Rite Way

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Coming of Age the Rite Way by David Blumenkrantz Book Resume:

Coming of Age the RITE Way: Youth & Community Development through Rites of Passage addresses the absence of community-oriented rites of passage. This book is distinguished from others in that it combines almost fifty years of scholarship and practice to examine the concepts of rites of passage and sense of community, as it exists in literature and life. It focuses on the reciprocal relationship between rites of passage and sense of community and ways for it to impact the development of children and the health and adaptability of their community. This text raises and answers some of the most fundamental questions facing parents, schools and communities; How do we raise our children to be resilient, self-reliant, capable adults who are competent and with compassion that is manifested in civic engagement for social justice? The book sets forth guiding principles and clear methods for putting into practice a whole systems approach to youth development through rites of passage. The approach involves connecting and enhancing environments and building competencies, which promote the positive development of children and youth in their families, in their schools, among their peers in their community and with a strong connection to the natural world. It provides extensive narratives and case studies to illustrate how a framework of rites of passage is used to weave a common language throughout the community and links techniques for youth development with prevention, identification, intervention, and treatment and strengthens the fabric of community support.

Coming of Age in Utopia

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Coming of Age in Utopia by Paul M. Gaston Book Resume:

In this exquisitely wrought memoir of a committed life, historian, and civil rights activist, Paul Gaston reveals his deep roots in Fairhope---the unique Utopian community founded in 1894 by his grandfather on the shores of Mobile Bay, Alabama. Fairhope grew into a unique political, economic, and educational experiment and a center of radical economic and educational ideals. As time passed, however, Fairhope's radical nature went into decline. By the early 1950s, the author began to look outward for ways to take part in the coming struggle---the civil rights movement. Gaston's career at the University of Virginia, where he taught from 1957-97, forms the core of Coming of Age in Utopia.

Coming of Age in Shakespeare

Coming of Age in Shakespeare by Marjorie Garber Book Resume:

Marjorie Garber examines the rites of passage and maturation patterns--"coming of age"--in Shakespeare's plays. Citing examples from virtually the entire Shakespeare canon, she pays particular attention to the way his characters grow and change at points of personal crisis. Among the crises Garber discusses are: separation from parent or sibling in preparation for sexual love and the choice of husband or wife; the use of names and nicknames as a sign of individual exploits or status; virginity, sexual initiation and the acceptance of sexual maturity, childbearing and parenthood; and, finally, attitudes toward death and dying.

Girlhood in British Coming-of-Age Novels

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Girlhood in British Coming-of-Age Novels by Soňa Šnircová Book Resume:

The book discusses a selection of coming-of-age narratives that offer a revisiting of the classic Bildungsroman heroine – the young white middle-class woman – and present her developments in postwar and postmillennial British literature. In terms of theoretical approaches, the study draws on works by the feminist critics whose incorporation of gender into the studies of the Bildungsroman resulted in the delineation of the female version of the genre, the female Bildungsroman and its specific twentieth-century variation, the feminist Bildungsroman. The selected coming-of-age novels present further transformations of the female Bildungsroman. The classic heroine of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Bildung narratives reappears in twentieth-century novels as a modern girl who experiences a significant rise of feminist consciousness. In more recent works, she becomes a postfeminist girl who questions “victim feminism” and tests the potential of “girl power” to subvert the patriarchal tradition. Relating the postfeminist developments of the girl heroine to the influence of contemporary media culture, the book explores whether these literary representations of girlhood incorporate antifeminist backlash messages. It will be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of literary and girls’ studies, particularly those who want to see new trends and issues in young adult fiction in the context of a literary tradition.

Coming of Age in a Hardscrabble World

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Coming of Age in a Hardscrabble World by Nancy C. Atwood,Roger Atwood Book Resume:

Nonfiction storytelling is at its best in this anthology of excerpts from memoirs by thirty authors--some eminent, some less well known--who grew up tough and talented in working-class America. Their stories, selected from literary memoirs published between 1982 and 2014, cover episodes from childhood to young adulthood within a spectrum of life-changing experiences. Although diverse ethnically, racially, geographically, and in sexual orientation, these writers share a youthful precocity and determination to find opportunity where little appeared to exist. All of these perspectives are explored within the larger context of economic insecurity--a needed perspective in this time of growing inequality. These memoirists grew up in families that led "hardscrabble" lives in which struggle and strenuous effort were the norm. Their stories offer insight on the realities of class in America, as well as inspiration and hope.

Coming of Age in American Anthropology

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Coming of Age in American Anthropology by Malopa'upo Isaia Book Resume:

This is the book, & a must read, of the century. It's anthropological history in the re-making. The American Anthropological best seller, the "Coming of age in Samoa" by Margaret Mead, has now been challenged by a descendant of the Tuimanu'a, the Paramount traditional ruler of the group of Islands where Margaret Mead centred her 'anthropological' claims. Chief Malopa'upo Isaia, a descendant of the Tuimanu'a (king of Manu'a), the very people in Margaret Mead's book, has now raised some very serious traditional & legal issues, in relation to Margaret Mead's book, Columbia University's role, & the American Anthropological Association's 'professional' role. In his book, "Coming of age in American Anthropology", the Chief is now ordering the removal, withdrawal, & the disassociation, of every material by Margaret Mead on his cultural intellectual property. He has also outlined several legal issues which will have serious ramifications globally, on any academic who undertakes any cultural fieldwork, on someone else's cultural intellectual property. The "Coming of age in American Anthropology", may well opens the floodgate to civil lawsuits from the two Samoan Governments for billions of dollars in damages to the business community, the Tourism Industry of Samoa, & from the descendants of the King of Manu'a. It is definitely the case of the century, & a must read for all students of anthropology, psychology, sociology, & law. Chief Malopa'upo Isaia is a name to watch for, as his work will without a doubt change the face of American Anthropology forever.

Coming of Age in Contemporary American Fiction

Coming Of Age Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Coming of Age in Contemporary American Fiction by Kenneth Millard Book Resume:

This book explores the ways in which a range of recent American novelists have handled the genre of the ‘coming-of-age’ novel, or the Bildungsroman. Novels of this genre characteristically dramatise the vicissitudes of growing up and the trials and tribulations of young adulthood, often presented through depictions of immediate family relationships and other social structures.This book considers a variety of different American cultures (in terms of race, class and gender) and a range of contemporary coming-of-age novels, so that aesthetic judgements about the fiction might be made in the context of the social history that fiction represents.A series of questions are asked:• Does the coming-of-age moment in these novels coincide with an interpretation of the ‘fall’ of America?• What kind of national commentary does it therefore facilitate?• Is the bildungsromana quintessentially American genre?• What can it usefully tell us about contemporary American culture?Although the focus is on the contemporary period, this is placed in the context of reference to earlier novels and criticism of the genre, as well as historical changes in the status of the family, and the adolescent within it.Features* Provides detailed interpretations of 12 key contemporary novels from authors including Purple Americaby Rick Moody, The Age of Consentby Geoffrey Wolff, The Virgin Suicidesby Jefffrey Eugenides and Prozac Nationby Elizabeth Wurtzel.* Explains the importance of the coming-of-age genre to the broader American literature canon.* Makes a significant intervention in contemporary debate about what is most valuable in recent American fiction.
