Sociology of Childhood

Examines: how childhood has been defined and shaped in our own society, historically, looking at the historically changing social construction of childhood in our own society; children's connections to the adult-organized world, where we learn about various socialization theories and how children learn to be members of the culture, as well as how children are linked to the broader society - the school system, the economy and system of social class, the mass media, consumerism; children's own social worlds, as we, all semester, look at how young children experience, respond to, and attempt to shape their adult-created world.
