Coming of Age on the Streets of Java : Coping With Marginality, Stigma and Illness (Paperback) (Thomas
about this item
This ethnography is based on almost five years of fieldwork in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia, between 2001 and 2015. Stodulka investigates “street children’s” coming of age, and their remarkable social and emotional competences, instead of resorting to a dreadful discourse of pity and despair. His ethnography's multivocal narrative couples vivid accounts of ethnographic case studies and life stories with current theory on affect, emotion, empathy, structural violence, and social interaction in the context of marginality, stigma and chronic illness.
