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 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.
