Ethnic and Cultural Differences in Intergenerational Social Support

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Antonucci, Toni, and James S. Jackson. 2003. "Ethnic and Cultural Differences in Intergenerational Social Support." In Global Aging and Challenges to Families edited by Bengtson, Vern L.; Lowenstein, Ariela. 355-370. Aldine de Gruyter, Hawthorne, NY.

Opens with a consideration of how generations are defined, using an example to demonstrate the differential transmission & experience of ethnic & cultural traditions. The balance of the discussion is given to exploring how individual experiences influence personal development & development as generational member. In this light, the global nature of generational issues is illustrated, highlighting the impact of sociohistorical, cultural, experiential, geographical, & geopolitical contexts. Attention turns to how social support is experienced across cultures, racial & ethnic groups, & generations, with an eye toward identifying similarities & differences in terms of support relations structure & quality. Reciprocity is then scrutinized for its conceptual utility in understanding intergenerational relations across racial, ethnic, & cultural differences. Contextual factors are seen to have important implications for the content of beliefs, values, & attitudes within generations as well as for the process & outcome of familial & generation cohort socialization.
