Children of a New World: Society, Culture, and Globalization

By Paula S. Fassdear | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Over the course of the twenty-five years during which these essays were written, I have incurred a variety of intellectual and personal debts that can hardly be repaid in a brief acknowledgment, and I will make no attempt to do so here. But several individuals have been especially important to the specific form and shape that the work collected in this volume has taken. Harold Wechsler, Stephen Sugarman, Mary Ann Mason, and Steven Mintz are special buddies who have encouraged me in ways that cannot go without remark and appreciation. Reed Ueda, Mark Carnes, Peter Stearns, Jennifer Coles, and Deborah Durham sponsored several of the essays and assisted their final development. I would especially like to thank James Brooks and the SAR Press for their kind permission to publish Chapter 9, originally conceived for a School of American Research Seminar in April 2004; it will be published by the SAR Press as “Childhood and Youth as an American/Global Experience in the Context of the Past,” in Figuring the Future: Children, Youth, and Globalization, edited by Jennifer Cole and Deborah Durham. Parts of this essay were also presented in a different form in May 2004 at the Child Studies Seminar at the University of Linköping, Sweden; as the inaugural lecture in October 2004 at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis seminar on the Gendering of Children; as a keynote address in November 2006 at the conference on “Stories for Children, Histories of Childhood,” at the Université François Rabelais in Tours, France; and at the Conference on Children's Rights at the Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile in June 2005. I would like to thank the members of the Linköping seminar and especially Bengt Sandin for their helpful insights; the hospitality provided by Virginia Yans and Rudolph Bell at Rutgers; Rosemary Findley and Sebastien Salbayre at the Université François Rabelais, Tours; and Jaime Couso and Ema Infante at Universidad Diego Portales, Santiago. The book has also benefited from the secretarial assistance of Sherrill Young and the amazing versatility of Andrew Keating. Charles Lesch helped me with the index, and Lisa Shapiro helped with the page proofs. It exists because Jack Lesch, my life companion and partner, has been steadfast in his emotional support and personal generosity.
