Abstract

"Mount Lamington broke out in violent eruption on 21 January 1951, killing thousands of Orokaiva people, devastating villages and destroying infrastructure. Generations of Orokaiva people had lived on the rich volcanic soils of Mount Lamington, apparently unaware of the deadly volcanic threat that lay dormant beneath them. Also unaware were the Europeans who administered the Territory of Papua and New Guinea at the time of the eruption, and who were uncertain about how to interpret the increasing volcanic unrest on the mountain in the preceding days of the disaster. Roars from the Mountain seeks to address why so many people died at Mount Lamington by examining the large amount of published and unpublished records that are available on the 1951 disaster. The information sources also include the results of interviews with survivors and with people who were part of the relief, recovery and remembrance phases of what can still be regarded as one of Australia’s greatest natural-hazard disasters."

Abstract

En 1875 la Real Academia de Ciencias Morales y Políticas convocó un concurso sobre el tema: “¿Convendría establecer en las islas del Golfo de Guinea, o en las Marianas, unas colonias penitenciarias, como las inglesas de Botany-Bay?”. El dictamen de la Academia propuso el premio para la memoria que aquí se publica, redactada por Concepción Arenal (1820-1893), de quien celebramos el bicentenario. En ella expone que estas colonias penales “forman una de las páginas más ignominiosas de que debe avergonzarse un pueblo honrado”. Además, como puede leerse en el dictamen, “tanto por la belleza de la forma como por la pureza del pensamiento, y no cabe dejar la lectura hasta terminar la Memoria”.

Abstract

There is currently much discourse about generations in the public sphere. A sequence of letters conflates generations and age cohorts born in the last few decades (generation “X”, “Y” or “Z”) as well as multiple categories are used to describe today’s young people as a generation that is distinct from its predecessors. Despite the popularity of generational labels in media, politics, or even academia, the use of generation as a conceptual tool in youth studies has been controversial. This Special Issue allows readers to better understand the key issues regarding the use of generation as a theoretical concept and/or as a social category in the field of youth studies, shedding light on the controversies, trends, and cautions that go through it.
