Gouvernementalität und Kindheit: Transformationen by Nektarios Ntemiris

By Nektarios Ntemiris

In der neueren Kindheitssoziologie versteht sich Kindheit nicht mehr als naturgegebene Tatsache. Es gilt Kindheit, Erwachsensein, Erwachsenwerden and so on. in gegebene soziale Zusammenhänge einzuordnen und ähnlich wie Geschlechterverhältnisse als Prinzipien symbolischer Ordnungsweisen zu fassen. Somit werden Generationenverhältnisse als historisch entstandene analysiert, die in ihrer Binarität (mit allen Widersprüchen) über Diskurse und Praktiken ihren sozialen Sinn erhalten. Die Relation zwischen Erwachsenen und Kindern ist dabei als strukturelles Machtverhältnis zu sehen, das beeinflusst wird durch übergeordnete politische und ökonomische Zusammenhänge. Dem Anspruch pädagogischer Autonomie und Freiheit und einer Erziehung zu Autonomie und Freiheit muss somit kritisch begegnet werden.
