Abstract: Changes toward less patriarchal family systems in the United States have been theorized to have several implications for the socialization of adolescent children (See Hagan et al. 1987; Vander Ven, Cullen, Carrozza, & Wright, 2001; Singer, 2001). Drawing on the work of Giddens (1991), Singer (2001) argues that the shift away from traditional, patriarchal households toward modern, egalitarian households is correlated with a shift in parental child-rearing towards attitudes which emphasize autonomy, self-reliance and independence. Moreover, Hagan et al. (1987) theorize that modern, egalitarian households are more likely to redistribute their control efforts so that daughters and sons are subject to equal parental control, and consequently, little gender difference in delinquency.

In this qualitative study, I conducted in-depth interviews with 25 adolescents from patriarchal and non-patriarchal households. In contrast to the perceptions of adolescents in patriarchal households, I found that fathers in modern, egalitarian households were more likely to share in the day-to-day caretaking and supervision of their adolescent children. But despite this difference, the adolescents in non-patriarchal households still perceived their mother to be the primary caretaker. Thus, I argue that this finding suggests a cultural lag. Furthermore, confirming Singer's (2001) expectation, I also found that parents in non-patriarchal households were less likely to initiate efforts to actively track adolescents' whereabouts and activities. However, I also found that low levels of parental supervision, especially in the case of single-parent households, were related to structural factors, in addition to the relative position of parents' position in the workplace.

Abstract: Abstract

In this paper I draw on Hagan et al. (1987) and Singer (2001) and consider how adolescent reactions to parental controls vary in traditional, patriarchal and modern, egalitarian households. To understand how adolescents think about their parents' control strategies, I conducted in-depth interviews with 25 adolescents from patriarchal and non-patriarchal households. One of the main contributions of this study was the discovery of the strategies adolescents use in response to parental controls: 1) conformity, 2) waiting it out, 3) hiding out, 4) covering tracks, and 5) open rebellion. Strategies among adolescents in patriarchal households were likely to be reactions to the fear of external or direct controls (e.g., colluding with peers to "cover tracks"), while strategies among adolescents in non-patriarchal households were more likely to be reactions to internalized parental values (e.g., unquestioning obedience to parental rules). Regardless of gender, adolescents from non-patriarchal households were more likely than those from patriarchal households to report using strategies of "open rebellion." Findings suggest that future research should move beyond simply examining parental control strategies; it should also examine adolescent reaction strategies for dealing with the controls they perceive.

"Defining True Faith While Forging Military Alliances: The Patriarch of Constantinople Kyrillos Loukaris (1570-1638) and the Patriarch of Moscow Philaret Romanov (1553-1633)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Washington Marriott Wardman Park, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-10-23 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The relationship between the controversial patriarch of Constantinople Kyrillos Loukaris and his Muscovite counterpart, Philaret Romanov, excited the curiosity of many scholars. Still, as most of the documents issued by Loukaris which are now held in Russian archives await an edition, and as Philaret’s own archive seems to be lost, many questions remain unanswered. My aim is to show how Loukaris tried for decades to forge an alliance against the Habsburgs between Muscovy, the Ottoman Empire and the Protestant states of Europe. I will also show how Philaret positioned himself during the negotiations, willingly ignoring Loukaris’ “Calvinist” Confession of faith. Finally, I will argue in favour of a nuanced and personal approach to the subject: we should not speak about relations between “Muscovy” and “Constantinople” / “Istanbul”; we should instead speak in terms of networks and clans. This would explain better why Muscovy hesitated to get involved in the affairs of the Orthodox East, why the Ottomans were suspicious about the contacts between Orthodox Ecclesiastics and Russian authorities, and why the True Faith proved so difficult to define. To talk about Loukaris and Philaret is not to talk about Muscovy and Constantinople; it is to speak about two visions of Orthodoxy and politics.
