Course Description: This course explores the main sociological approaches to childhood and youth in modern industrial societies, as well as the ways in which particular perspectives on childhood are central to all social theory. Students examine the debates surrounding the historical development of childhood and the various approaches to the impact of state intervention and social policies, from both the experiences of childhood and youth and the transition to adulthood. Further topics of study include the social construction of child abuse; youth homelessness and youth criminality as social problems; the stolen generations; children and the law; the fertility decline; and the differentiation of childhood experience along lines of class, gender, race, and ethnicity.
