Coming of Age on the Streets of Java
- Coping With Marginality, Stigma and Illness
A one-of-a-kind story forms the background for this book's ethnography: The author has come of age together with his protagonists. Thomas Stodulka based his study on four years of fieldwork in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia, between 2011 and 2015. He inquires into "street children's" remarkable social and emotional competences, instead of resorting to a pathos-ridden discourse of compassion and despair. The ethnography's multi-vocal narrative couples vivid ethnographic case studies and life stories with current theory on emotion, empathy, structural violence, and social interaction in the context of marginality, stigma, and chronic illness.
