SOC 504

Children and Society

Children are at the centre of many social institutions and forces. Families, schools and media have a direct effect on children's lives. The power of these institutions on children is examined within the larger social contexts of culture and class. Children, however, are not merely passive witnesses of social life; they are also participants, so their perceptions, interests and experiences will be explored.
