What is Childhood Studies?

Childhood Studies (CS) is a multi-disciplinary field that utilizes all areas of study to understand childhoods as experienced by children today. CS draws on scholarship in the social sciences (specifically anthropology, economics, history, and sociology), the humanities (especially literature, religion, philosophy, and the fine arts), and the behavioral sciences (with an emphasis on psychology).
