Abstract

Coletânea de artigos que se propõe a desvendar os rótulos impostos pela sociedade à 'terceira idade'. Dessa forma, poderemos acompanhar as transformações ocorridas nessa faixa etária, como o crescimento demográfico, e refletir sobre o idoso do futuro. Analisa-se, na obra, o envelhecimento sob o ponto de vista dos próprios idosos e idosas, revelando o que significa ser saudável para eles e elas. Constrói um idoso que protagoniza sua própria história, em vez de se corroborar a idéia estereotipada do velho como um fardo para a família e para a sociedade.

Abstract

This book offers a synthesis of social science and evolutionary approaches to the study of intergenerational relations, using biological, psychological and sociological factors to develop a single framework for understanding why kin help one another across generations. With attention to both biological family relations as well as in-law and step-relations, it provides an overview of existing studies centred on intergenerational relations – particularly grandparenting – that incorporate social science and evolutionary family theories. This evolutionary social science approach to intergenerational family relations goes well beyond the traditional nature versus nurture distinction. As such, it will appeal to scholars across a range of disciplines with interests in relations of kinship, the lifecourse and the sociology of the family.

Abstract

Dieser Band enthält die Referate des 8. Göttinger Workshops zum Familienrecht 2009, der die Bedeutung der neuen Haager Unterhaltsübereinkommen und der Unterhaltsverordnung für das englische und deutsche Recht thematisierte. Die Referate von Matthias Heger (BMJ) und Juliane Hirsch (Haager Konferenz für Internationales Privatrecht) schildern den Entstehungsprozess, die Verständigungsschwierigkeiten und den Anwendungsmechanismus der neuen Rechtsinstrumente. Wolfgang Hau (Universität Passau) und Joachim Dose (BGH) reflektieren die Auswirkungen und neue Problemfelder, die sich für das deutsche Recht und die deutsche Rechtspraxis ergeben. Einen besonderen Akzent erhielt der Workshop durch die Beteiligung eines englischen Richters (Ian Karsten) und eines englischen Barristers (Tim Amos), die in anschaulicher Weise darstellen, warum die grenzüberschreitenden Rechtsinstrumente im Hinblick auf das englische autonome Verfahrens- und materielle Recht Schwierigkeiten bereiten. Band 8 der Reihe „Göttinger Juristische Schriften“ Die Reihe wird von der Juristischen Fakultät der Georg-August-Universität herausgegeben und macht Veranstaltungen an der Fakultät einer interessierten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich.

Abstract

This open access book presents an innovative study of the rise of unmarried cohabitation in the Americas, from Canada to Argentina. Using an extensive sample of individual census data for nearly all countries on the continent, it offers a cross-national, comparative view of this recent demographic trend and its impact on the family. The book offers a tour of the historical legacies and regional heterogeneity in unmarried cohabitation, covering: Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central America, Colombia, the Andean region, Brazil, and the Southern Cone. It also explores the diverse meanings of cohabitation from a cross-national perspective and examines the theoretical implications of recent developments on family change in the Americas. The book uses data from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series, International (IPUMS), a project dedicated to collecting and distributing census data from around the world. This large sample size enables an empirical testing of one of the currently most powerful explanatory frameworks for changes in family formation around the world, the theory of the Second Demographic Transition. With its unique geographical scope, this book will provide researchers with a new understanding into the spectacular rise in premarital cohabitation in the Americas, which has become one of the most salient trends in partnership formation in the region.

Abstract

This open access book examines the triangle between family, gender, and health in Europe from a demographic perspective. It helps to understand patterns and trends in each of the three components separately, as well as their interdependencies. It overcomes the widely observable specialization in demographic research, which usually involves researchers studying either family or fertility processes or focusing on health and mortality.

Abstract

Wer sind die Paare, die sich an die Reproduktionsmedizin wenden? Wie ist die Kinderwunschbehandlung in die Lebensverläufe der Paare eingebettet? Wie gestaltet sich der Entscheidungsprozess für die Nutzung der Reproduktionsmedizin auf Paarebene? Diesen Fragen widmet sich die Autorin. Es wird ein theoretisches Erklärungsmodell vorgestellt, anhand dessen sich partnerschaftliches generatives Handeln bei vorliegender Infertilität aus dezidiert sozialwissenschaftlicher Perspektive analysieren lässt. Dieses bildet die Grundlage für die empirische Untersuchung. Als Basis für die Analysen werden die Daten einer eigens durchgeführten Befragung von Paaren in Kinderwunschbehandlung verwendet.

Abstract

Wer vor hundert Jahren in Deutschland Forstwirtschaft studierte, der kam häufig aus gutbürgerlichen Verhältnissen oder entstammte einer Adelsfamilie. Diese jungen Männer fühlten sich in aller Regel den militärischen Traditionen ihrer Väter verpflichtet und wussten mit der Verfassung von Weimar wenig anzufangen. Sie genossen die Privilegien ihrer Herkunft und das Renommee ihres Berufsstandes. Das „Dritte Reich“ und sein „Führer“ wurden von ihnen freudig begrüßt und die frühen Kriegserfolge begeistert gefeiert, an denen sie als Reserveoffiziere nicht selten auch selbst beteiligt waren. Dennoch fanden einige von ihnen den Weg in den Widerstand gegen Hitler. Wie aber verträgt sich das landläufige Bild von den Forstleuten als „staatstreue Funktionseliten“ mit Konspiration und Attentat? Im vorliegenden Band wird der Versuch unternommen, die Voraussetzungen und Spielräume „forstlichen“ Widerstands gegen das nationalsozialistische Regime anhand biographischer Skizzen darzustellen. Soweit möglich, wurden auch die Biographien der Ehefrauen dieser Forstleute in die Recherchen einbezogen. Sie waren zumeist in die geheimen Aktivitäten ihrer Männer eingeweiht und trugen die Entscheidung mit, nicht nur das eigene Leben, sondern auch das ihrer Familien aufs Spiel zu setzen.

Abstract

Of Love and Papers explores how immigration policies are fundamentally reshaping Latino families. Drawing on interviews with undocumented young adults, Enriquez investigates how immigration status creeps into the most personal aspects of everyday life, intersecting with gender to constrain dating, marriage, and parenting. She illustrates how the imprint of illegality remains, even upon obtaining DACA or permanent residency. Interweaving the perspectives of US citizen romantic partners and children, she exposes the multigenerational punishment that limits the upward mobility of Latino families. Of Love and Papers sparks an intimate understanding of contemporary US immigration policies and their enduring consequences for immigrant families. “By highlighting the ways US immigration policies shape the experiences of romantic love, intimacy, and family formation, Enriquez’s meticulous research calls attention to the enduring injurious effects on undocumented and DACAmented young adults, and on their citizen spouses and children. An innovative and sobering account of the far-reaching consequences of our punishing immigration policies. Timely and compelling.” PIERRETTE HONDAGNEU-SOTELO, Florence Everline Professor of Sociology, University of Southern California “In an engaging and methodologically rigorous narrative, Enriquez sheds novel light on the courtship and dating phase of family formation among undocumented and/or mixed status Mexican immigrant families. Undeniably, it will be of central interest to anyone who cares about immigrants and their families.” CECILIA MENJÍVAR, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Los Angeles

Abstract

This book portrays men’s experiences of home alone leave and how it affects their lives and family gender roles in different policy contexts and explores how this unique parental leave design is implemented in these contrasting policy regimes. The book brings together three major theoretical strands: social policy, in particular the literature on comparative leave policy developments; family and gender studies, in particular the analysis of gendered divisions of work and care and recent shifts in parenting and work-family balance; critical studies of men and masculinities, with a specific focus on fathers and fathering in contemporary western societies and life-courses. Drawing on empirical data from in-depth interviews with fathers across eleven countries, the book shows that the experiences and social processes associated with fathers’ home alone leave involve a diversity of trends, revealing both innovations and absence of change, including pluralization as well as the constraining influence of policy, gender, and social context. As a theoretical and empirical book it raises important issues on modernization of the life course and the family in contemporary societies. The book will be of particular interest to scholars in comparing western societies and welfare states as well as to scholars seeking to understand changing work-life policies and family life in societies with different social and historical pathways.

Abstract

This book explores how feelings about gender have changed over three interrelated generations of women and men of different social classes during the twentieth century. The author explores the ways in which generational experiences are connected, what is continued, what triggers gradual or abrupt changes between generations - and between women and men within these generations. The book explores how new feelings of gender gradually change gender norms from within, and how they contribute to the incremental creation of new social practices.​​​Nielsen suggests a new way of conducting psychosocial research that focuses on generational psychological patterns of gender identities and gendered subjectivities in times of change from a psychoanalytic perspective. Combining generational and longitudinal research, the book works with temporality as a theoretical as well as a methodological dimension. Theoretically it combines Raymond Williams' idea of "a structure of feeling" with the work of Eric Fromm, Hans Loewald, Nancy Chodorow and Jessica Benjamin.
