A European Joint MA
Programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology


Lecturer: Prof. Beatriz Ballestín, Ph.D.
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain)

This course focuses on the themes of children and childhood from an anthropological perspective. Lectures will emphasize the importance of children’s social experiences as they are active and agentive subjects who construct their own cultures as well as influence their communities and societies.
After a conceptual and historical introduction to the Anthropology of Childhood, we will explore contributions on children’s culture and identities, and then will concentrate on issues of diversity and inequality stemming from gender, class, nationality and ethnicity. Finally we will pay attention to the debates on methodology and subjecthood when doing ethnographical research with children.
