Description

Using children's own accounts, "Childhood Identities" explores how children between the ages of four and nine come to an understanding of the physical body as a medium of social expression, and the significance which this has on their relationships and friendhips. Concentrating on the child's perspective, it raises questions about ideas of difference and disability as they relate to social identity and personhood. The children's accounts also reveal the subtle and different ways in which children begin to learn about gender and sociality in relation to the concepts of belonging and outsiderhood.show more
