Globalization is not only a large-scale phenomenon: it is also inextricably bound up with intimate aspects of personhood, care, and the daily decisions through which we make our lives. Looking at sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar, Mexico, the U.S., Europe, India, and China, "Generations and Globalization" investigates the impact of globalization in the context of families, age groups, and intergenerational relations. The contributors offer an innovative approach that focuses on the changing dynamics between generations, rather than treating changes in childhood, youth, or old age as discrete categories. They argue that new economies and global flows do not just transform contemporary family life, but are in important ways shaped and constituted by it. Jennifer Cole, an anthropologist, is Associate Professor in the Department of Comparative Human Development at the University of Chicago and author of "Forget Colonialism: Sacrifice and the Art of Memory in Madagascar". Deborah Durham is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Sweet Briar College. Her research on cultural identity, citizenship and youth both in Botswana and more generally has appeared in the "Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute", "American Ethnologist", "Ethnos", and other journals.
