Crossing borders and boundaries, countries and cultures, they are the children of the military, diplomatic corps, international business, education and missions communities. They are called Third Culture Kids or Global Nomads, and the many benefits of their lifestyle – expanded worldview, multiplicity of languages, tolerance for difference – are often mitigated by recurring losses – of relationships, of stability, of permanent roots. They are part of an accelerating demographic that is only recently coming into visibility. In this groundbreaking collection, writers from around the world address issues of language acquisition and identity formation, childhood mobility and adaptation, memory and grief, and the artist’s struggle to articulate the experience of growing up global. And, woven like a thread through the entire collection, runs the individual’s search for belonging and a place called “home.” This book provides a major leap in understanding what it’s like to grow up among worlds. It is invaluable reading for the new global age.

For more than a decade, Third Culture Kids has been the authority on "TCKs" - children of expatriates, missionaries, military personnel and others who live and work abroad. With a significant part of their developmental years spent outside of their passport country, TCKs create their own, unique "third" cultures. Authors Pollock and Van Reken pioneered the TCK profile, which brought to light the emotional and psychological realities that come with the TCK journey, often resulting in feelings of rootlessness and grief but also an increased confidence and ability to interact with many cultures. Through interviews and personal writings, this new, expanded edition explores the challenges and benefits that TCKs encounter, and also widens the net to discuss the experiences of CCKs, cross-cultural kids, who are immigrants, international adoptees or the children of biracial or bicultural parents. Highlighting dramatic changes brought about by instant communication and ever-evolving mobility patterns, Third Culture Kids reveals the hidden diversity in our world and challenges traditional notions of identity and "home" - and shows us how the TCK experience is becoming increasingly common and valuable.

In this compelling study of the children of serial migrants, Danau Tanu argues that the international schools they attend promote an ideology of being “international” that is Eurocentric. Despite the cosmopolitan rhetoric, hierarchies of race, culture and class shape popularity, friendships and romance on campus. By going back to high school for a year, Tanu befriended transnational youth, often called “Third Culture Kids”, to present their struggles with identity, belonging and internalized racism in their own words. The result is the first engaging, anthropological critique of the way Western-style cosmopolitanism is institutionalized as cultural capital to reproduce global socio-cultural inequalities.

The question "Where are you from?" isn't normally a source of stress, unless you're a Third Culture Kid. It's hard out there for a TCK, but it's even harder for a TCT (a Third Culture Teen) - not only stuck between different cultures, but stuck between childhood and adulthood.

The author shares her struggles with identity; lacking the confidence to call herself a true Korean. She describes how she has felt like a mish-mash of all the cultures within her, which enhanced her insecurities about her "unfinished," "incomplete" self. In this book, you'll hear fascinating stories about: How Third Culture Teens have overcome their difficulties and used them to their advantage Third Culture Teen issues such as the role of technology and adjustments to college Adult TCKs in various sectors of society, ranging from Ruth Van Reken, an acclaimed TCK author, to Lindie Botes, a polyglot YouTuber If you feel misunderstood and uncategorized as a teenage TCK, you are not alone. This book will help you see that you do belong somewhere.

Keeper Book PDF/Epub Download

An enthralling story of a poor and gawky kid who mysteriously becomes the world's greatest goalkeeper — a seamless blend of magic realism and exhilarating soccer action. "And you found it, this thing you were looking for?" It was darker now, and the city below Faustino's office was a jazzy dance of neon signs and traffic. The big man went to the window and looked down at it all, spreading his large hands on the glass. "No," he said. "It found me." When Paul Faustino of LA NACION flips on his tape recorder for an exclusive interview with El Gato — the phenomenal goalkeeper who single-handedly brought his team the World Cup — the seasoned reporter quickly learns that this will be no ordinary story. Instead, the legendary El Gato ("The Cat") quietly narrates a spellbinding tale that begins in a mythic corner of the South American rain forest, where a ghostly but very real mentor, the Keeper, emerges to teach the gangly boy the most thrilling secrets of the game. Combining vivid imagery and heart-stopping action, this evocative, strikingly ethereal novel about loyalty, passion, and magic will haunt readers, regardless of their love for soccer, long after the story is ended.

Broken Stereotypes Book PDF/Epub Download

"Where are you from?" This is a common enough question when people meet and start to get to know one another. And many of us would have no difficulty responding to such a simple query, but for Third Culture Kids the answer is more complicated. In their young lives, some have already lived in so many different countries it may even seem like a trick question. "Third Culture Kids" is a term that has come into use relatively recently. It refers to those children who are living in a culture other than that of their parents. These kids are simultaneously learning to maneuver in the culture of their parents, the culture where they are currently living, and a "third culture," which is a mixture of the two. The benefits for these children in terms of expanded world views, friendships with children from other cultures, and opportunities to travel and learn multiple languages are obvious. But there are disadvantages, as well. Lacking a consistent "home base," these children may feel confusion with regard to issues such as patriotism and cultural values. They may also suffer from a bit of an identity crisis, not feeling completely comfortable in any single culture. In this collection of (often semi-autobiographical) stories, 8th grade students from Suzhou Singapore International School in Suzhou, China offer readers a glimpse into their worlds-both the ups and downs of their unique situations. At times funny, and occasionally sad, their stories bear witness to numerous intercultural misunderstandings or challenges they have observed or experienced.

The Grief Tower Book PDF/Epub Download

Children who grow up outside of their parent's passport country, Third Culture Kids (TCKs), experience a significant number of losses, grief-inducing experiences, and traumas during their developmental years. These events stack up like blocks on a tower throughout the life of the TCK, creating what Lauren Wells has coined the Grief Tower. If it continues to stack without these experiences being processed, a TCK's Grief Tower is likely to crash in their early adulthood. But is this avoidable? Can parents and caregivers provide care that prevents the tower from stacking too high in the first place? The answer is yes, and this practical resource is full of tools for helping the TCKs we love to process their grief.

The concept of Third Culture Kids (TCKs), children who follow their globetrotting parents around the world, is not a new one and has been widely studied. However, there is one specific group of TCKs who have, until now, been largely ignored - EdKids, the children of international school educators. In this new work, Dr Ettie Zilber brings together all the material she has collected over many years of research on this unique group and allows them to voice their own opinions, feelings and stories for the first time. Spanning a long career in education, Dr Ettie Zilber has served at international schools and other educational centers in the US, Israel, Singapore, Spain, Guatemala and China, served on the boards of ECIS and AISH, presented and published on cross-cultural themes and served as an Adjunct Professor for Lehigh University and Endicott College, teaching courses in Comparative Education and Intercultural Communication.
