The future of childhood studies? Reconstructing childhood with ideological dilemmas and metaphorical expressions
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Child and Youth Studies.
Number of Authors: 12018 (English)In: Childhood, ISSN 0907-5682, E-ISSN 1461-7013, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 158-172Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article draws attention to the way some theoretically driven researchers discuss an insistent need for reframing the ontological and epistemological assumptions in the field of research known as childhood studies. Using a rhetorical approach, I will take a closer look at how their vocabulary is constructed and made credible through an attempt to find a cohesive language applicable in an interdisciplinary discourse. The article points to the paradoxical claim of taking a step away from a modernist way of thinking, while the arguing is based on a modernist approach. In addition, it also highlights constructions of a certain ideal researcher.
