The Anthropology of Learning in Childhood

The Anthropology of Learning in Childhood is hot of the presses, including my chapter, ‘Learning in schools‘.

Teaching Culture, Teaching Childhood

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.
