Children and Youth as Subjects, Objects, Agents illustrates a wide range of innovative approaches to the interdisciplinary study of childhood and youth. Childhood/youth studies as an interdisciplinary academic field has long rejected universal definitions of childhood and has instead explored different conceptualizations of childhood and youth and varying manifestations of the agency and subject status of young people. The chapters in this book illustrate how different approaches can illuminate the wide variety of ways in which childhood and youth have been conceptualized and experienced in different times and places.
