Michael Young, the Institute of Community Studies, and the Politics of Kinship
Home Themed issues 20 Introduction Urban Kinships. Sin ce the seminal works of Emile Durkheim and Frederic Le Play , followed by the theories of Talcott Parsons Parsons and Bales , a connection has been made between urbanization, the emergence of the nuclear family and the modernization of society. Sociologists of the Chicago School thus described the contemporary city as a place of individual emancipation and elective ties, as opposed to the inherited solidarities of traditional kinship-based rural communities Park Although they reversed the causality between modernization and nuclearization, Peter Laslett and the Cambridge Group Laslett and Wall helped solidify this association by refining the concept of household as an equivalent to family group.
They criticized making a direct connection between modernization, urbanization, and family nuclearization. More recently, qualitative and quantitative work on mobility Dureau , housing Bonvalet , ageing Attias-Donfut and Renaut , Tomassini, Wolf, and Rosina , Hank , and new family patterns including blended families, single-parent families, and families with same-sex parents Le Gall , have shown that high residential proximity, mutual help and frequent face-to-face contact among non-co-resident kin are not limited to disadvantaged groups and are widespread in contemporary urban societies.
Co ntemporary households are often part of wider kinship configurations of changeable forms that are mobilized according to social needs, lifecycle changes and moral expectations. Kinship has not been marginalize d in urban societies, but it has become less normative and is constantly renegotiated and reproduced through more fluid living arrangements. While cities are often considered mere contextual variables in the sociology or demography of the family, unchanged by the reconfiguration of the family and having no impact on it, the articles in this special issue explore the co-production of kinship and the city by analyzing them through everyday practices at a local level.
They explore how kinship arrangements shape the urban fabric, new residential morphologies, everyday mobility within and outside the city, residential choices and urban social segregation. At the same time, they show how kinship is actually produced in contemporary cities and the key role urban space plays in shaping new patterns of kinship. While the first two dimensions of kinship — descent and alliance — are still strictly regulated by law, everyday living arrangements have become more fluid and free from the residential rules that may prevail in traditional societies i.
It is all the more true in cities, for urban space is highly dense and heterogeneous Wirth Kinship is thus not marginalized in cities, but more easily renegotiated and re-invented in spatial terms. It is necessary to build new concepts that capture the operational units of everyday kinship in contemporary cities. The articles assembled in this issue not only evidence the relevance of kin relationships that go beyond the boundary of the co-resident family, but conceptualize new categories to identify other levels of urban family organization, while overcoming the family-kinship dichotomy.
The articles also use new academic concepts developed from fieldwork to theorize these urban kin arrangements. Rather, they are zones of residential dwelling where there is a greater density of occupation by houses of related people which are also related houses.
Such vicinages can be found in many urban and cultural contexts, but often stay invisible to observers, since their moral justification and linguistic description vary from one culture to another and rarely refer to kinship.
Residential choices, everyday mobility, and territorial identities are embedded in these intermediate socio-spatial configurations. In such cities, people frequently do not live with their relatives co-residence , but next door semi- or quasi-co-residence , in independent dwellings located on the same plot or block and sharing common spaces.
Several articles focus on the micro-scale of the plot to study how the city and kinship are both constructed from below. Those plot-level connections articulate logics of the division of labor according to gender, age and technical skills, as well as materializing the prevailing hierarchical order in the family. The author shows that many people in Saint Laurent do not live in a single house. This regular mobility between old and new residences plays a role in remembering genealogy and rural traditions, and it cannot be understood merely as a transitional pattern for rural migrants adapting to the city, since such multi-local arrangements can be maintained for several generations.
Based on biographical interviews conducted in Caballito, a middle-class neighborhood in central Buenos Aires, her paper shows that the Argentinian middle classes seek to live close to their relatives so they can see them every day. In most studies, the socially mobile world of the middle class is said to be more dependent on the market and official institutions than on informal support networks in managing its existence Segalen Recent studies have shown that urban segregation is due not only to housing market factors and public policies, but also to informal kin aggregation strategies that allow urban residents to stay in or return to their original neighborhoods through family channels.
As Natalia Cosacov implicitly shows in her article on Buenos Aires, kinship configurations can allow residential stability even in cases of social mobility, producing clusters of counter-segregation among macro-trends toward segregation. The papers gathered in this issue highlight the prevalence of the nuclear-family ideology that permeates native language, from the profane to the legal and political-institutional.
Pina-Cabral notes that this nuclear-family model is so powerful that socio-spatial formations of practical kinship often elude observation and are difficult to describe for researchers and research subjects alike. In other words, people may express an ideology that they do not necessarily practice. Neighborhood residents, municipal officials and social workers all share this nuclear family idiom, even though they use large kin networks in their everyday lives and mobilize them to get access to social housing.

It was the book that launched a generation of social workers, sociologists and local government officials on their careers - a book that pioneered a genre of social observation. It helped transform popular perceptions of urban working-class life and, presciently, foresaw a host of issues about the workings of community with which we are still grappling. This week sees the republishing of Michael Young and Peter Willmott's Family and Kinship in East London - arguably the most influential piece of sociology in Britain in the 20th century - to mark its 50th anniversary. What Young and Willmott did was listen to the voices of a community in postwar Bethnal Green that, for many decades, had either been pitied or vilified.

Очевидно, она перевела свое имя на единственный язык, равно доступный ей и ее клиенту, - английский. Возбужденный, Беккер ускорил шаги в поисках телефона. По другой стороне улицы, оставаясь невидимым, шел человек в очках в тонкой металлической оправе. ГЛАВА 27 Тени в зале шифровалки начали удлиняться и терять четкость.
