Example text

Street kids in public, media discourses are typically portrayed either as victims or as victimizers, either, as law professor Dianne Martin notes, disenfranchised and estranged or “demonized and criminalized” (98), and the enactments of laws such as Alberta’s Protection of Children Involved in Prostitution Act (1998) and Ontario’s Safe Streets Act (1999) both assume and reify such identities. By contrast, more progressive legal and sociological discourse seeks to find ways to attend to what Lucie White calls “the moral agency, the political saavy [sic]—the human particularity—of the living communities of people who find themselves poor,” often by listening to “what those who live in poverty say about what it means” (307).

Et c’est certainement là que tout se joue, à la limite du connu et de l’inconnu. Jean Starobinski expliquait que le dedans et le dehors sont inconcevables l’un sans l’autre – on peut en dire sans doute autant de « home » et de « away », de l’ici et de l’ailleurs, du moi et de l’autre – et que l’essentiel se passait à la frontière entre les deux univers, à la surface de contact, « lieu des échanges, des ajustements, des signaux sensibles, mais aussi celui des conflits et des blessures » (15).
