Fulfills Discovery category Historical Perspectives!

Childhood is commonly assumed to be “natural” and unchanging. Yet historical studies have shown us that the meaning and experience of childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood are constructed daily, and differently, around the world. This course explores the diverse experiences of children and youth in a variety of geographic and historical settings, including their interaction with family, community, religion, schools, government, the military, and medical and legal professionals. We explore the philosophical and legal debates over children’s capacities and rights, and learn about the many ways that children and youth have contributed to culture, politics, and social change.
