In this interview Professor Annie Rogers gives an overview of her career as a psychologist and researcher and the increasing influence of Lacanian psychoanalysis in her work with children and young people. She highlights the complexities around the notion of ‘the voice of the child’ and explains the method of interviewing and analysis she has developed to listen to ‘the unsayable’, the tacit knowledge that children have and which they express indirectly and often not in words. She foresees childhood studies developing in ways that are difficult to imagine and believes that the digital age will open up education to people around the world, who will become intrigued with their own culture, their own version of childhood and their own children.

Keywords:   psychologist, Lacanian, psychoanalysis, voice of the child, unsayable, digital age, education, children, childhood
