VILLALTA, Carla. Anthropology of state interventions concerning childhood, adolescence and family. Cuad. antropol. soc. [online]. 2021, n.53, pp.21-38.  Epub 06-Mayo-2021. ISSN 1850-275X.

This article reviews some of the central and most persistent characteristics of the actions undertaken within the institutional field of the administration of childhood, adolescence, and their families, which in one way or another, have been examined by different socio-anthropological investigations carried out in our region. The article identifies how processes associated with motherhood and family building, of individuation and psychologizing, intersect with each other in these actions. In doing so, it critically reappraises the contributions in a field of study which, in recent years, has attempted to decipher and understand the most salient features of a type of intervention that combines, not without tension, assistance and repression, support and control. Antropologia das intervenções estatais na infância, na adolescência e na família.
