Description: How do we understand childhoods as temporary states of being, and childhood itself as a temporal construct? How does time play a role across children's lives? How does the range of children's ideas about and experiences of time differ from adults' ideas about and experiences of time? How might children imagine time in relation to themselves? In this course we explore time and temporality as a window onto children's self-experiences and adults' ideas about children and childhood. We will explore perspectives on time and childhood in sociology, literature, psychology, history, and childhood studies.
