Childism and History

Patriarchy in the form of adultism is deeply rooted in history. Across a diversity of times, places, cultures, and social systems, adulthood (in similar ways to masculinity, Whiteness, heterosexism, and so on) has come to represent a normative humanity. This colloquium is the start of a project that aims to develop childist readings of history that both deconstruct its embedded adultism or age biases and lift up ways that children and adults have sought children’s structural empowerment.

To this end, the colloquium explores possible connections between historical research and the critical lens of childism. While historical research has increasingly attended to children’s lived experiences, agency, and voices, it also needs to examine the underlying structural norms by which children are marginalized and/or empowered in the first place.
Presenters respond to the following questions:

Can the lens of childism be helpful for historical research? That is, can placing children at the center of inquiry change broader understandings of history and/or historical scholarship?

What, if anything, might distinguish childist approaches from other work in the history of childhoods?

What might childism offer to historical research that complements other critical perspectives such as feminism, anti-racism, disabilities studies, and decolonialism?
