OSPINA-ALVARADO, María Camila; LUNA, María Teresa  and  ALVARADO, Sara Victoria. Moving forward: Political subjectivities in early childhood and families in exile. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2022, vol.20, n.1, pp.1-25.  Epub Feb 11, 2022. ISSN 1692-715X.

The article presents the results of a research study that aimed to comprehend and strengthen the political subjectivities of children in early childhood whose families come from the context of armed conflict. Epistemically and methodologically, the research used political and performative ontological hermeneutics. It had an emphasis on the collective and generative narratives of 19 girls, 25 boys, 23 mothers, 7 fathers, 15 female teacher and 1 male teacher in two child care centers in Bogotá and Pereira. The results showed that “moving forward”, as a metaphor that refers to children’s subjectivities, involves an option for relationships, eliminates homogenization, and prompts resistance and re-existence practices, as well as the constitution of political subjectivities and identities. Participants concluded that the children’s lives deserve to be lived because of their condition of humanity.

Keywords : Early childhood; family; armed conflict; potential; identity.
