Key thinkers in childhood studies

Daniel Cook’s first degree was in communications but his interest in childhood was piqued by working on a magazine devoted to children’s clothing. He eventually wrote a significant book on how children are positioned in the world of commerce and as consumers. His current interests are in the meanings ascribed to children and childhood and what this signifies for children’s personhood. In his interview he also talks about his involvement in the doctoral programme in Childhood Studies at Rutgers University and how he engages his students in thinking about and interrogating representations of children and childhood.

Keywords:   communications, commodification, personhood, reflexivity, children, childhood, representations
