Family Troubles?

Filmed as part of the Family Troubles? event held at South Bank University and supported by CCIG, this lecture by Professor Jill Korbin offers an anthropological take on the concept of family trouble.

The talk will be of great interest to those concerned with issues surrounding cultural pluralism, family life and ways of dealing with culturally sensitive difference.

This channel hosts all the video content shot from the Family Troubles? event held at South Bank University on the 7th and 8th of July 2010 and organised by CCIG and The Open University. This two day conference explored the changes and challenges in the lives of children and young people. The event was attended by a number of leading academics in the field.

More information about the event can be found here: http://www.open.ac.uk/ccig/page/family-troubles-the-ongoing-project and on the Family Troubles? blog here: http://familytroublesccig.blogspot.com/

Aims of conference:

As the everyday family lives of children and young people come to be increasingly defined as matters of public policy and concern, it is important to raise the question of how we can understand the contested terrain between ‘normal’ family troubles and troubled and troubling families. This inter-disciplinary two day colloquium aims to promote dialogue between researchers addressing mainstream family change and diversity in everyday lives, and those specialising in specific problems which prompt specialist interventions, and to consider the implications for policy makers, service users and practitioners.
