State of the Field Roundtable

“What’s New, Kids? The State of the Field in the History of Childhood”
Sun, November 24, 4:30 to 6:15 pm, San Francisco Marriott Marquis, 5, Sierra F

In the last several years, the number of papers dealing with children in some way has increased exponentially. The history of childhood and children’s history are relatively new. Philippe Ariès’s L’enfant et la vie familiale sous l’ancien régime (1960) is often cited as the starting point for the serious studies of childhood, but until fairly recently our regional history lagged behind. New approaches have expanded the possibilities for understanding both constructions of childhood –adult-mediated or otherwise – and children’s experiences as historical actors, and, perhaps most importantly, how this knowledge can enhance our understanding of larger historical phenomena. This roundtable will discuss the state of the field today and suggest new pathways for understanding the youngest of historical subjects, their agency, and evolving concepts of childhood.
