Sample text

Children eventually become adults, or – to put the point more dramatically – the oppressed will in due course become the oppressors! The same inversion applies to the relationship between researcher and researched. Child researchers are not (for the most part) children. Child research is mainly done by adults, although they were once children and they are shaped by their experiences of childhood. By contrast, women’s studies has largely been the province of women, as scholar and subject. There are exceptions, of course.

Memories of our own childhoods inform our ideas about who we think we are, who we think we were, and what we believe childhood should be for others. Yet memory is a slippery fish and THE HISTORICAL CONSTRUCTION OF CHILDHOOD 35 operates often simultaneously at different levels, arguably being reconstructed over time. Early memories can be affected by later images, narratives and experiences. Some seem clear, rational and conscious, while others lurk largely unacknowledged at an unconscious level.

Three metaphors for interdisciplinarity Consider the following three metaphors for interdisciplinarity: • • • A ‘clearinghouse model’ would encompass all studies of children and childhood, all research questions, methodologies and disciplinary approaches. A ‘pick ’n’ mix model’ would be more selective but still incorporate a wide range of approaches. The selection criteria might be about the specific topics studied or orientation to the field. A ‘rebranding model’ might appear to have interdisciplinary aspirations, but would mainly be about redefining a traditional field of inquiry while still adhering to conventional disciplinary boundaries.
