In this fascinating new book, Affrica Taylor encourages an exciting paradigmatic shift in the ways in which childhood and nature are conceived and pedagogically deployed, and invites readers to critically reassess the naturalist childhood discourses that are rife within popular culture and early years education. Through adopting a common worlds framework, Reconfiguring the Natures of Childhood generates a number of complex and inclusive ways of seeing and representing the early years. It recasts childhood as: messy and implicated rather than pure and innocent; situated and differentiated rather than decontextualized and universal; entangled within real world relations rather than protected in a separate space. Throughout the book, the author follows an intelligent and innovative line of thought which challenges many pre-existing ideas about childhood. Drawing upon cross-disciplinary perspectives, and with international relevance, this book makes an important contribution to the field of childhood studies and early childhood education, and will be a valuable resource for scholars, postgraduate students and higher education teachers.

This book explores and critiques topical debates in educational sciences, philosophy, social work and cognitive neuroscience. It examines constructions of children, parents and the welfare state in relation to neurosciences and its vocabulary of brain architecture, critical periods and toxic stress. The authors provide insight into the historical roots of the relationship between early childhood education policy and practice and sciences. The book argues that the neurophilia in the early childhood education field is not a coincidence, but relates to larger societal changes that value economic arguments over ethical, social and eminently pedagogical concerns. It affects the image of the child, the parent and the very meaning of education in general. Constructions of Neuroscience in Early Childhood Education discusses what neuroscience has to offer, what its limitations are, and how to gain a more nuanced view on its benefits and challenges. The debates in this book will support early childhood researchers, students and practitioners in the field to make their own judgements about new evolutions in the scientific discourse.

The Posthuman Child combats institutionalised ageist practices in primary, early childhood and teacher education. Grounded in a critical posthumanist perspective on the purpose of education, it provides a genealogy of psychology, sociology and philosophy of childhood in which dominant figurations of child and childhood are exposed as positioning child as epistemically and ontologically inferior. Entangled throughout this book are practical and theorised examples of philosophical work with student teachers, teachers, other practitioners and children (aged 3-11) from South Africa and Britain. These engage arguments about how children are routinely marginalised, discriminated against and denied, especially when the child is also female, black, lives in poverty and whose home language is not English. The book makes a distinctive contribution to the decolonisation of childhood discourses. Underpinned by good quality picturebooks and other striking images, the book's radical proposal for transformation is to reconfigure the child as rich, resourceful and resilient through relationships with (non) human others, and explores the implications for literary and literacy education, teacher education, curriculum construction, implementation and assessment. It is essential reading for all who research, work and live with children.

Wissenschaftliche Studie aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Sonstiges, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "Homo Spaciens" ist ein abgewandelter Begriff des "Homo sapiens". Der neuartige Begriff " Homo Spaciens" setzt sich zusammen aus dem lateinischen Wort "homo" im Sinne der Spezies Mensch und dem Zusatz "Spaciens", das die Bedeutung des Weltraums, auf englisch "Space" hat, also eine Menschheit, die im Weltall daheim ist. Der Homo Spaciens ist eine weiterentwickelte Spezies des Menschengeschlechts, das geboren worden ist in der Wiege des Planeten Erde, um den Weltraum zu bevölkern und sich auszubreitet, um andere Planeten zu besiedeln. Der Russische Wissenschaftler Konstantin TSIOLKOVSKY (1857 – 1935) wird als Vater der Kosmonautik und des menschlichen Fluges in den Weltraum angesehen. TSIOLKOVSKY hatte bereits die Vision einer höherentwickelten Spezies der Menschheit, die Expeditionen in das gesamte Solarsystem unternehmen und danach in die Tiefen des Kosmos expandieren könnte, um kosmische Zivilisationen zu schaffen. Er glaubte, dass Expeditionen ins Weltalls durch den Menschen unvermeidlich seien und die menschliche Evolution beflügeln würden. Fast jeder Autor auf dem Gebiet der Weltraumforschung zitiert TSIOLKOVSKY heute als einen primären Einfluss. Er verstand bereits klar, dass es bei der Zukunft der Weltraum-Erforschung um die menschliche Evolution gehen würde. Heute wird uns zunehmend deutlicher, dass das Universum unsere unendliche Umgebung ist, dessen Erforschung unvermeidlich einen fundamentalen Wandel der Menschheit zeitigen wird. Vielleicht wird sich der Homo Sapiens sich in eine neue Spezies, den Homo Spaciens, weiter entwickeln, der besser an das Leben im außerirdischen Weltraum angepasst sein wird als an das Leben auf der Erde. Weltraum Pädagogik könnte darauf vorbereiten... Wie stellen wir uns die Zukunft der Menschheitsentwicklung vor? Dystopien, negative Uopien von Totalitarismus und Weltuntergangs-Szenarien, und Utopien mit sozialen und technologischen positiven Visionen stehen zur Wahl. Der von zahlreichen Kosmonauten beschriebene Overview Effekt könnte ein kosmopolitisches Bewusstsein bewirken. Die Kosmische Erziehung nach Maria MONTESSORI beweist Weitblick. Internationale Weltraum-Camps, Weltraum-Projekte und Weltraum- Bildunsgprogramme intendieren, Kinder, Jugendliche und junge Erwachsene für Weltraum-Fragen, Raumfahrt und naturwissenschaftliches Erkenntnis- Interesse zu motivieren.

Gendered Inequalities In Asia

Global processes with flows in money, commodities, and people have made it increasingly varied and blurred what it means to be a female or male in Asia today. Socio-economic and cultural patterns in Asia intersect with one another and, in doing so, they translate into power relations that create both possibilities and constraints for women and men. By focusing on unequal access to political and religious power, occupation, and health facilities, as well as different options when it comes to family life and sexuality, the recognition of women and men are explored in this volume as manifestations of ideas about femininity and masculinity.

Irish Children’s Literature and Culture looks critically at Irish writing for children from the 1980s to the present, examining the work of many writers and illustrators and engaging with major genres, forms, and issues, including the gothic, the speculative, picturebooks, ethnicity, and globalization. It contextualizes modern Irish children’s literature in relation to Irish mythology and earlier writings, as well as in relation to Irish writing for adults, thereby demonstrating the complexity of this fascinating area. What constitutes a "national literature" is rarely straightforward, and it is especially complex when discussing writing for young people in an Irish context. Until recently, there was only a slight body of work that could be classified as "Irish children’s literature" in comparison with Ireland’s contribution to adult literature in the twentieth century. The contributors to the volume examine a range of texts in relation to contemporary literary and cultural theory, and children’s literature internationally, raising provocative questions about the future of the topic. Irish Children’s Literature and Culture is essential reading for those interested in Irish literature, culture, sociology, childhood, and children’s literature. Valerie Coghlan, Church of Ireland College of Education, Dublin, is a librarian and lecturer. She is a former co-editor of Bookbird: An International Journal of Children's Literature. She has published widely on Irish children's literature and co-edited several books on the topic. She is a former board member of the IRSCL, and a founder member of the Irish Society for the Study of Children's Literature, Children's Books Ireland, and IBBY Ireland. Keith O’Sullivan lectures in English at the Church of Ireland College of Education, Dublin. He is a founder member of the Irish Society for the Study of Children’s Literature, a former member of the board of directors of Children’s Books Ireland, and past chair of the Children’s Books Ireland/Bisto Book of the Year Awards. He has published on the works of Philip Pullman and Emily Brontë.
