LEARNING OUTCOMES

’The course mostly draws on the New Childhood Sociology approach. The goal is to provide the cognitive tools of this field of study, with particular attention to the gender perspective. The fundamental concept of Interpretative Reproduction will be treated through the key concepts of Generation - Agentivity, Control and Culture of children. The assumption is that children, within the different institutional systems in which they participate, interpret the culture they produce in relation to the cultural production of adults. The expected objective is to develop adequate methodological skills to promote the agency of boys and girls in educational contexts
