We are excited to announce a new feature at ACYIG – Spotlight on Scholarship!
If you or someone you know has published in the anthropology of children and youth, please consider submitting that article for the Spotlight on Research feature. This feature will not only provide scholars an opportunity to share their research but also help ACYIG bring attention to the work being published in regard to childhood and adolescence.
Our first author is José Enrique Hasemann Lara. His article, “Care in Ruination: Accessing Children’s Critiques of Health Through Playwriting,” explores what writing plays with children can tell us about their perspective on their worlds.
Dr. Lara holds a Ph.D. in anthropology (UCONN, 2021) and an M.A. in applied biocultural medical anthropology (USF, 2011), and M.P.H. in global communicable diseases (USF, 2011). His past research has focused on public health, inequality, racialization, and the unequal distribution of access to public goods in the urban landscapes of Tegucigalpa and Comayagüela, Honduras.
