The Department of Anthropology present the 2015 Sally Weaver Award Guest Lecture by Dr. Susan Shepler, School of International Service, American University (Washington DC).

book cover with kids on beachChildhood Deployed examines the reintegration of former child soldiers in Sierra Leone.  Shepler argues that there is a fundamental disconnect between the Western idea of the child soldier and the individual lived experiences of the child soldiers of Sierra Leone. She contends that the reintegration of former child soldiers is a political process having to do with changing notions of childhood as one of the central structures of society.
