The Anthropology of Learning in Childhood is hot of the presses, including my chapter, ‘Learning in schools‘. Here’s the publisher’s blurb: “This first major anthropological reference book on childhood learning considers the cultural aspects of learning in childhood from the points of view of psychologists, sociologists, educators, and anthropologists.”
Next week I will be in Albuquerque for the American Anthropological Association Childhood Interest Group (AAACIG) joint meeting with The Society for Anthropological Sciences (SASci) and The Society for Cross-Cultural Research (SCCR). I am chair and discussant for the symposium ‘Teaching Culture, Teaching Childhood: Contours of the Anthropology of Childhood in Coursework Contexts’. The symposium was organized by Sally Campbell Galman, author of Shane the Lone Ethnographer, a beginner’s guide to ethnography.
