Abstract

This article explores how the institutional treatment of new family configurations weaves into patterns of everyday life, framing intimacy and family organisation. through the study of homoparental family configurations in the italian context, i will analyse the impact, on family configurations, of the gap between the juridical translation of filiation ties and the everyday exercise of parenting. t h e ethnographic gaze will illustrate parental and institutional efforts to make or unmake kinship ties which are neither "biogenetic" nor legally recognised. In this way, I will address how kin relations are constructed, deconstructed and defined by different actors, including children. This will provide some theoretical reflections on the "nature" of kinship and filiation, which must be resituated in its social and historical condition of possibility and in a "moral economy of filiation".
Articolo in rivista - Articolo scientifico
Cet article explore la façon dont le traitement institutionnel de l’homoparentalité impacte la vie quotidienne, l’intimité et l’organisation familiale. A travers une étude sur des configurations homoparentales italiennes, je vais analyser l’impact du manque de la traduction juridique des liens de filiation des parents d’intention sur l’exercice quotidien de la parenté. Les données ethnographiques illustreront les efforts parentaux et institutionnels pour faire et défaire des liens de parenté qui ne sont ni « biogénétiques » ni reconnus légalement. Ce faisant, j’interrogerai la façon dont les relations de parenté sont construites, déconstruites et définies par différents acteurs, y compris des enfants. L’article conclut sur les implications théoriques concernant la « nature » de la parenté et de la filiation, qui doivent être resitués dans leurs conditions de possibilités au niveau socio-historique, voire dans une « économie morale de la filiation ».
