Childhoods: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Children and Youth

The editors of this new series seek monographs that push the edges of disciplinary boundaries, think critically about the nature of childhood, and expand our understanding of the diverse experiences of children and the social and political forces that shape them. They are particularly interested in work that recognizes children's active roles as producers of political and cultural meaning.
