Abstract [en]

This article asks questions about the ontology of child culture. It aims to position the concept of child culture at the forefront of theoretical research without creating a true' or singular definition of the concept. It is rather a conceptual exploration of partial consistencies of child culture in and through practices. The focus of the analyses is on five institutional cultural practices created for children: two children's museums, a science centre, a theme park and an amusement park. A cross-analysis of these practices provides the empirical material for proposing the notion of child culture multiple'.
