Abstract

La violenza fra i giovani, quella violenza efferata che colpisce se stessi o gli altri, si presenta per gli adulti come perturbante: muta, senza ragione, senza senso, pura spinta distruttiva. Le risposte che vediamo dispiegarsi a livello sociale in generale testimoniano i loro effetti di impotenza: né la comprensione, né l’autorità, paiono infatti poter arginare questo tipo di fenomeni. E per i giovani che vi sono coinvolti, raramente si apre un’interrogazione: la violenza agita non fa sintomo, se intendiamo il sintomo nel senso psicoanalitico, come soluzione di compromesso, risultante di una sostituzione del soddisfacimento pulsionale; la violenza agita non produce interrogazione. Questo volume nasce da questa prospettiva: lasciarsi interrogare dal fenomeno della violenza nelle giovani generazioni per cogliere, da un lato cosa nel nostro legame sociale produce violenza, dall’altro se e come l’esperienza psicoanalitica possa proporre una via per tessere un legame laddove il legame sembra presentarsi come impossibile.

Abstract

Passing Through Shanghai examines how children experience international mobility. Focusing on a specific yet diverse group of expatriate youths in contemporary Shanghai, the book investigates how children negotiate cultural identity when they are subject to the highly mobile and often privileged lifestyle associated with their parent’s international careers. The ethnographic fieldwork that informs the book was carried out in Shanghai from 2010 to 2012 and focused on expatriate teenagers’ everyday practices, their lives at international schools, their engagement with the city, their dreams and aspirations, as well as their questions of belonging. The book’s ethnographic approach captures the “in-between” state of moving while growing up and explores teenage practices and positionings in this transitory situation. The teenagers’ own perspectives and experiences of living in expatriate communities contribute to a larger view of the interdependence and contradictions between the aspired flexibility of twenty-first century identities and the rigidity of cultural divisions based on nationality, ethnicity, gender, and class.

Abstract

This book aims at contributing to the scientific and academic discourse as regards to the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of youth ministry. Too often, youth ministry has been approached from a mainly practical point of view, almost asking how we keep young people off the streets. Its methodology has often not included the theological and theoretical presuppositions that lie behind this ministry. Previous scientific reflection has been determined by a one-dimensional and almost exclusive point of view. In comparison with existing literature, this book does not focus so much on the ‘how’ of youth ministry. It innovates a different approach. The book challenges the existing exclusive approach and develops an inclusive, congregational and missional understanding of and approach to youth ministry.From a particular perspective on the understanding the main objectives of Practical Theology, the author endorses the so-called movement of ‘what is supposed to be going on’. He adds the outcome of an empirical round table discussion with some 16 leaders in this field on the descriptive and interpretive movements within the subject field: what is going on and why is it going on? The book will form the standard for any new research with regard to youth ministry. The book’s contribution lies on the level of sound theological reasoning and argumentation (supported by many scholars) for an inclusive congregational understanding of ministry as an integral part of every congregation being missional in being and doing. Youth, children, adolescents and emerging adults, are just as integral a part of every congregation within which they live and serve.
