Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Childhood Studies (CS) is a multi-disciplinary field that utilizes all areas of study to understand childhoods as experienced by children today. CS draws on scholarship in the social sciences (specifically anthropology, economics, history, and sociology), the humanities (especially literature, religion, philosophy, and the fine arts), and the behavioral sciences (with an emphasis on psychology). The evolution of Childhood Studies as an academic field has much in common with the development of other types of multi-disciplinary scholarship such as African-American Studies and Women's Studies. Each was initiated for the purpose of bringing to the academy points of view that had been underrepresented, if not repressed.show more
