Sociological studies of children and youth; v.15


For this volume in the series, sociologists and education scholars extend current understandings of children's disputes by examining how, in the various arenas and social worlds of children and young people, matters of ownership, alignment, and social and moral order are always at play. They show how disputes can offer analytic opportunities to examine and make visible typically unseen social and moral orders. The topics include disputes during family mealtime, children's production of authority and subordinance in their pretended play interaction during disputes, some categorical resources for accomplishing disputes in a correctional youth facility, challenging and orienting to monolingual school norms in Turkish American children's peer disputes and classroom negotiations at a US Turkish Saturday school, when verbal disputes get physical, and facing death in computer gaming. There is no index. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.
