New book for Review – “Ethnographies of Youth and Temporalities: Time Objectified”

Anne Line Dalsgaard, Martin Demant Frederiksen, Susanne Hojlund, and Lotte Meinert are Danish anthropologists at Aarhus University, and they are the editors of a new book, Ethnographies of Youth and Temporality: Time Objectified (Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 2014).  With other anthropologists and sociologists, they have studied how time is experienced in problematic ways by youth in various cultures, including Cameroon, the USA, the Philippines, Nepal, Denmark, the Republic of Georgia, Brazil, Romania, and Uganda.  These studies concern the interplay of temporal structure and different forms of temporal resistance.  There is an “Afterword” by Michael G. Flaherty whose book “The Textures of Time” was reviewed in Symbolic Interaction by Michael Spivey in 2012 (Vol 35 (3)).
