‘Talk to Me. There’s Two of Us’: Fathers and Sickle Cell Screening
source: SAGE Journals
authors: Simon M Dyson, Maria Berghs, Karl Atkinsummary/abstract:
Studying kinship has involved doing family, displaying family and ‘displaying family’ as a sensitising concept to understand modalities troublesome to display. Fathers at antenatal screening clinics for sickle cell are faced with pressures to produce multiple displays – of family, illness knowledge, the good father and the model citizen – often in the face of racialised identities. Such fathers emphasise the importance of hypervisibility in gendered spaces and hypervigilence, lest pressures to adopt the ‘right’ disposition have adverse consequences for themselves, partners or their children.
The displays of fathers, as well as displays they decline, are orientated to repair of social relationships. Where displays are provoked by social relations – resisting racist or gender stereotypes, navigating citizenship uncertainties, negotiating work and family lives – displays become problematic. Family display becomes troubled where the preferred social relationships fathers seek to constitute are ones that are not readily accommodated within extant social relations.organization: University of York, UK; De Montfort University, UK
