Interrogating Childhood and Diaspora through the Voices of Children in Sweden
Bak, Maren; von Bromssen, Kerstin
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v17 n1 p113-128 2010
This article introduces the concepts of diaspora and transnational networks to research on children with migrant backgrounds. It is based on interviews with children who live in a Swedish multicultural area and the research questions focus on issues relating to diasporic consciousness and diasporic practices from a child's perspective. The results show how the children negotiate their identity and belongings to places, how they make their own distinctions between home and homeland and how in everyday life they actively contribute to sustaining transnational kin networks. (Contains 3 notes.)
