Welcome to the website dedicated to the ethnological and anthropological study of children and childhoods.
The anthropology of childhood explores the perspectives and experiences of children and young people, and their involvement in social relationships, broader structures and the environment around them. Childhood experiences vary according to cultural setting, social class, gender, historical period, and geographical, political, and socioeconomic circumstances.
Research with children and adolescents often employs photographs and other visual methods that provide insight into their perspectives while also providing a photographic record of childhood in the contemporary era.
