about this item

How do we understand children and young people's lives in ways that do not rely on romantic ideals and nostalgia or on demonising prejudices? Can the key geographical concepts of space, place and environment help us to understand social constructions of childhood and how they are experienced in children's lives?

This book draws on a rich and growing academic literature concerned with the spatiality of childhood and of children's lives and examines ways in which changing understandings of space, place and environment can challenge long-held attitudes towards children. In common with other texts in the "New Childhoods" series, it asks for a reappraisal of modernity's assumptions about children and a move towards full participation of children and young people in matters that concern us all. Combining discussion of relevant research and theory from key theorists and researchers with practical approaches from practitioners,Rethinking Children's Spaces and Places offers a shared language for students and professionals working with children in a range of multi-disciplinary teams.
