ANTH 218 - Anthropology of Childhood

(3 credits)
This course explores various stages of childhood development cross-culturally through case studies illustrating similarities and differences in conceptions of childhood over time and place. Contemporary childhood studies draw from across the anthropological subfields and are multidisciplinary, informed by psychological understanding of the stages of childhood development, historical research, sociology and literary studies. This course builds on this recent research as well as the pioneers who first raised interest in the topic. Offered annually. (Formerly ANTH 318) (CGCL; CMCL; CSOC; CSPI)
