Abstract

Si l'on choisit ses amis, on ne peut pas choisir sa famille, déplore l'adage. Ce livre collectif démontre que, bien au contraire, la volonté tient de plus en plus de place dans la création de la filiation. C'est le cas notamment entre parents et enfants adoptés, qu'il s'agisse d'adoptions légales ou de celles, par leurs pères, d'enfants nés d'insémination avec donneurs, ou encore d'« adoptions » informelles au sein des familles recomposées. Nous cherchons aussi à forger, parmi les parents de sang et leurs alliés, des réseaux relationnels privilégiés. Chacun opère des choix, « adopte » ou rejette des ancêtres, des beaux-parents, des frères et sœurs, des parents, voire des enfants. Quelles sont, dans les sociétés occidentales, les formes, les effets et la signification de ces « affinités électives » dans la construction de la parenté ? Et dans la définition de la filiation ? Pour répondre à ces questions, le détour par d'autres sociétés et d'autres temps s'imposait. Qu'est-ce qu'être parent, enfant, frère et sœur, chez les Sulka d'Océanie ou les Inuit de l'Arctique ? Dans la Grèce classique ou dans la Grèce contemporaine ? Dans la France des années cinquante comme dans celle des années quatre vingt- dix ? Ces dix contributions, qu'elles soient centrées sur l'adoption proprement dite ou sur des affiliations informelles, sur des sociétés privilégiant les liens du sang ou l'échange affectif, permettent de mieux comprendre notre propre système de filiation et ses récents bouleversements.

Abstract

The present study is a comprehensive analysis of the evolution of the system of long and short adjectives in Old Russian, a profound language change to which very little previous research has been devoted. It is generally assumed that in prehistoric Slavic, the system was purely grammatical with the long form denoting definiteness and the short form denoting indefiniteness. The present study finds, on the basis of evidence collected from Old Russian chronicle texts, that even the earliest of these sources display a substantially transformed system no longer reflecting the opposition between definiteness and indefiniteness, but governed by parameters of information structure.

Abstract

Despite the significant decrease in bullying that has been reported in many countries during the last two decades, bullying continues to be a significant problem among young people. Given the increase of internet use among youth, researchers have started to pay attention to cyberspace, understanding that it may be a fertile ground for bullying behaviors, specifically, what is known as cyberbullying. “Family, Bullying and Cyberbullying” examines the association of several family variables with bullying in offline and online environments during childhood and adolescence. Contributors from the Americas, Canada, Asia, and Europe offer cutting-edge research on family dynamics, bystander behaviors, parents’ and educators’ perceptions, and bullying and cyberbullying prevention and intervention strategies of bullying for school and home. This book also provides an analysis of the current research on the influence of family in the electronic bullying. Research topics included in the book: 1) Parental education and bullying and cyberbullying; 2) Parental monitoring and cyberbullying; 3) Parental communication and feelings of affiliation; 4) Student and educator perspective on cyberbullying; 5) Parents’ responses to bullying; 6) Parental mediation and bystander behaviors; 7) Development of scales to measure cyberbullying and high internet risks. “Family, Bullying and Cyberbullying” is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, families, and practitioners in social education, social work, teacher education, and psychology.

Abstract

There has been increased interest among scholars in recent decades focused on the intersection of family and religion. Yet, there is still much that is not well-understood in this area. This aim of this special issue is to further explore the influence of religion on family life. In particular, this issue includes a collection of studies from leading scholars on religion and family life that focus on ways in which religion and spirituality may influence various aspects of family life including family processes, family structure, family formation, family dissolution, parenting, and family relationships.  The studies included incorporate both qualitative and quantitative analyses, incorporate a number of different religious traditions, focus on religiosity among both adults and youth, and explore a number of important issues such as depression, intimacy, sexual behavior, lying, divorce, and faith transmission.
