CfP: (In)Secure Worlds: Scales, Systems and Spaces of Carcerality

Social and Labour History News - Mon, 2020-11-16 10:40

Carceral systems have expanded over the past decades as strategies accompanying the many ‘wars on’ crime, drugs, poverty, and terrorism. These systems serve to securitize, isolate, manage and police specific groups of criminalized others. In effect, the carceral has become such an inextricable aspect of current security paradigms that scientists speak of a carceral age and carceral states (Moran et al. 2018, Garland 2013, Wacquant 2000).

Starting from the new century, Italian historical studies on childhood in the 20th Century have known a growing, although not systematic, attention. Research has focused on some significant issues, such as wars, fascism, or the Shoah; or on transversal issues such as welfare or school and educational policies. A not secondary role has been played by the publishing industry thanks to the publication of memories and diaries by those experienced, during their childhood, central events of the 20th Century, first of all the World Wars and racial persecution.
