Abstract [sv]

Kulturskolan är en av de främsta samhällsinstitutionerna för barns och ungas självvalda kulturella bildning. I motsats till det traditionella skol­väsendet är verksamheten frivillig och det finns inga kursplaner eller andra officiella dokument som styr innehållet. Det gör att den enskilda kulturskolan har stora möjligheter att utforma sin verksamhet med utgångspunkt i lokala förutsättningar. Pedagogik för kulturskolan vänder sig till dem som vill förstå kulturskolans idé och praktik, men också till dem som vill inspireras att forma en verksamhet som utgår från barns och ungas rätt att uttrycka sig konstnärligt. Exempel på teman som författarna tar upp är inkludering och ett bredare deltagande, specialpedagogik och hur en kulturskola med demokratiska mål kan fungera i praktiken. Utöver pedagogiska frågeställningar, kulturskolans historia och barns och ungas olika möjligheter diskuteras även gemenskapen med civilsamhälle och folkrörelser samt hur ett kreativt ledarskap kan se ut.

Abstract [en]

This piece is a collective exploration by seven doctoral researchers in Child Studies, who discuss notions of listening to children and young people in a Swedish context. We approach different aspects of listening in research and in practices such as education, psychiatry, and social work. The discussions in this collective writing are an invitation for continuous reflections about the contexts where listening to children is done, its challenges and possibilities.

Abstract [en]

In this explorative and collectively written paper, researchers and archivists from the research project Children’s cultural heritage — the visual voices of the archive ponder, wrestle with, confront, and dig deeper into what it means to preserve and include children’s own voices in archives. The authors acknowledge that child-produced cultural objects are historical landmarks and significant parts of national heritage. The article raises questions about where and how the ‘doing’ of what is here called children’s cultural heritage takes place, what it means to archive from children’s perspectives, and what aspects of children are saved during these preservation and archival management processes. To collect, preserve and provide access to heritage might empower and affirm individuals and subordinated groups of people who have not been seen or heard in the historical past, in the present, or in future pasts. Children, as a category, is one such subordinated group in heritage contexts. Adults therefore have a responsibility to empower children by strengthening their position towards other social groups, towards society and the heritage domain. This article provides insights into the challenges that heritage establishments face in taking children’s cultural heritage seriously.

Abstract [en]

This text is an exploration of collaborative thinking and writing through theories, methods, and experiences on the topic of the child, children, and childhood. It is a collaborative written text (with 32 authors) that sprang out of the experimental workshop Child Studies Multiple. The workshop and this text are about daring to stay with mess, “un-closure” , and uncertainty in order to investigate the (e)motions and complexities of being either a child or a researcher. The theoretical and methodological processes presented here offer an opportunity to shake the ground on which individual researchers stand by raising questions about scientific inspiration, theoretical and methodological productivity, and thinking through focusing on process, play, and collaboration. The effect of this is a questioning of the singular academic ‘I’ by exploring and showing what a plural ‘I’ can look like. It is about what the multiplicity of voice can offer research in a highly individualistic time. The article allows the reader to follow and watch the unconventional trial-and-error path of the ongoing-ness of exploring theories and methods together as a research community via methods of drama, palimpsest, and fictionary.

Abstract [en]

In this text, we explore the concept of children’s cultural heritage. We do so by investigating and reflecting upon the digitizing, categorizing and registering of children’s digital and analogue pictures in the Swedish Archive of Children’s Art. Children themselves do not agitate for the preservation of their own cultural heritage. As most archive taxonomies are based on adult categorizations, we ask what consequences this has for the preservation of children’s cultural heritage. From our theoretical location in Child and Heritage Studies and Science and Technology Studies, we see archived documents as infused with subjectivity by the way in which they are systematized and classified at the time of archiving. Thus, we approach the process of digitizing children’s pictures as a political practice. The micro-politics of the archive intertwines with broader politics of children and childhood as well as adult cultural heritage policies and theories. The analyses show which procedures are involved in creating a children’s cultural heritage, while also reflecting upon what notions of children become relevant for children’s cultural heritage.

Abstract [en]

This article explores what it means to listen to children by moving beyond the notion of voice and staying with the absences of children. In this way, we include the possibly lost, forgotten or unapproachable children in child and childhood research. Our methodological starting point is to listen by ‘staying with’ the absences of children’s verbal voices and physical bodies in two photographs. These photographs depict material artefacts connected to children in vulnerable situations: shrouds for wrapping stillborn babies’ bodies, and children’s shoes as an emblem of children living in hiding from domestic violence. The idea is to explore how we can listen to children whose verbal or embodied encounters we cannot or do not wish to display. Our aim is to listen to these absences and discuss how they influence and possibly reshape the practices of listening, as well as notions of the child and childhood.

Abstract [en]

In this article, we meet a seven-year-old boy, Matti, who was adopted from his birth country in Africa by a family in Sweden. We meet him together with his family as they are planning a family adoption return trip to his birth country and again after their return. We argue that an adoption return trip is a form of family travel and/or visiting friends and relatives (VFR) travel. By methodologically using a so-called children’s perspective we are primarily focusing on Matti and how he talks about the return trip. We explore some key concepts from child studies through Matti’s relational encounters in the world. By presenting agency and cultural competence as something that is enacted in practice, we show how they are enacted through the dependencies between Matti, his mother and his sister. The analysis shows that cultural competence and agency are fluid in the sense that they can be changed by how topics of discussion are woven through one another. Staying with Matti’s lived practices makes it possible to elaborate on and demonstrate different forms of competence and agency that are important for understanding children as tourists and children’s roles in family travel.

Abstract [en]

Disneyland’s 1955 Main Street is inspired by Walt Disney’s childhood on hometown street. Today, Disney Main Street has become a visual, cultural and historical heritage, and its aesthetic is visible in the architecture of American outlet villages, shopping malls and leisure parks all over the world. The Swedish amusement park Liseberg is one example of a place that reflects its influence. Initially this project set out to use visual documentation to explore the transference of Disney Main Street to a local context. In the course of this endeavour, however, its aim became to take on board an approach that can twist and challenge the settled, consensus view that Disney Main Street is an infantilising construct. So, the chapter begins by facing its own challenge: how to say something new about the well-trodden ground of Disney Main Street. This is resolved via the premise that methods enact the topics we research. The chapter will thus demonstrate that it is possible to avoid taking on the assumptions of earlier research in discussing Disney Main Street. This is achieved by discussing Main Street with family ethnography and the concepts of pure and impure critique (Illouz 2007). What emerges is a more ambiguous and complex interpretation of both Main Streets and their visitors.
