This volume is a collection of essays and analysis around the phenomenon of resistance as it is manifested in everyday events within the life-course. The chapters are revised and enriched versions of seminar presentations made by the authors in 20141. The seminar brought together cultural psychologists from eight different nationalities and diverse projects, focussed on conceptualising and discussing experiences of resistance, whether it was in the area of family life, childhood, school, public spaces, art, theatre, social distance, politics or biography. Each scholar highlighted those aspects of his or her area of study where the phenomenon of resistance was in evidence. As a result, there was a wide range of topics and phenomena that were covered, all with the cross-cutting theme of resistance. Hot debates and intense discussions during the seminar were common. What was seen as resistance from one cultural standpoint (for instance, gender relations within marriage in India) was not necessarily understood as such from a different cultural standpoint (European tradition about gender relations). A rich dialogue emerged, which the authors have attempted to capture while revisiting their own presentations, thereby unearthing some of the cross-cutting processes in the development and expression of resistance in everyday settings.

Abstract

This volume is a collection of essays and analysis around the phenomenon of resistance as it is manifested in everyday events within the life-course. The chapters are revised and enriched versions of seminar presentations made by the authors in 20141. The seminar brought together cultural psychologists from eight different nationalities and diverse projects, focussed on conceptualising and discussing experiences of resistance, whether it was in the area of family life, childhood, school, public spaces, art, theatre, social distance, politics or biography. Each scholar highlighted those aspects of his or her area of study where the phenomenon of resistance was in evidence. As a result, there was a wide range of topics and phenomena that were covered, all with the cross-cutting theme of resistance. Hot debates and intense discussions during the seminar were common. What was seen as resistance from one cultural standpoint (for instance, gender relations within marriage in India) was not necessarily understood as such from a different cultural standpoint (European tradition about gender relations). A rich dialogue emerged, which the authors have attempted to capture while revisiting their own presentations, thereby unearthing some of the cross-cutting processes in the development and expression of resistance in everyday settings.
