Instructor’s Statement:
This course hinges around a seemingly simple question: What is a child? In investigating the
shifting and contradictory answers to this question, students will examine how different
discourses and disciplinary perspectives shape our ideas about childhood both as an abstract
concept and as a lived experience. Historical, developmental, anthropological, and sociocultural
approaches to studying children and childhood will be examined in relation to a diverse range of
historical periods and cultural contexts.
Course readings have been selected to introduce you to current issues in the academic study of
children and childhood, and to ensure that you engage with multiple disciplinary (and
interdisciplinary) perspectives. Lectures for this course will emphasize the theoretical issues and
key concepts associated with each lecture topic, and provide additional examples that illustrate
them. The reading material is designed to compliment the lecture. Students should make every
effort to attend lectures to optimize their academic success in this course. Students should
consider my lectures as the “official textbook” for the course. In other words, don’t miss class.
Note to students: Students will conduct themselves in a respectful and open manner. There will
be issues discussed in this class that may clash with your personal views. I will not engage with
comments or gestures that detract in any way from the spirit of intellectual and constructive
exchange fostered in this course. While your ideas add to this environment and atmosphere of
intellectual growth, no sexist, racist, or homophobic remarks will be tolerated.
Finally, please remember that faculty, support staff and teaching assistants at Carleton
University are unionized workers. Be advised that the principles of solidarity and respect for
labor practices will be upheld.

On this site you will find the course outline, schedule, discussion forums, updates, course
feedback tools, marking rubrics, and a variety of useful links. It is going to be a dynamic space
with many opportunities for you to make a meaningful contribution to the course and connect
with your peers. The discussion forums represent an excellent place in which to ask questions of
your colleagues, share your thoughts on the material, post interesting and relevant links,
arrange study groups, etc.
The site will also include my PowerPoint lecture slides. While these slides are meant to assist
your efforts in the course, they are only a starting point for what we talk about in class. Material
will be covered in class that is not included on these slides. In other words, the slides should not
be regarded as a substitute for class attendance.

PLAGIARISM. Plagiarism is defined as the passing off of anyone else’s work as one’s own.
Plagiarism occurs when a student either a) directly copies more than one or two sentences of
another’s written work without acknowledgement; or b) closely paraphrases the equivalent of a
short paragraph or more without acknowledgement; or c) borrows, without acknowledgement,
any ideas in a clear and recognizable form in such a way as to present them as the student’s own
thoughts, where such ideas, if they were the student’s own would contribute to the merit of his
or her work.
What are the Penalties for Plagiarism?
A student found to have plagiarized an assignment may be subject to one of several penalties
including: expulsion; suspension from all studies at Carleton; suspension from full-time studies;
and/or a reprimand; a refusal of permission to continue or to register in a specific degree
program; academic probation; award of an FNS, Fail, or an ABS.
What are the Procedures?
All allegations of plagiarism are reported to the faculty of Dean of FASS and Management.
Documentation is prepared by instructors and/or departmental chairs.
The Dean writes to the student and the University Ombudsperson about the alleged plagiarism.
The Dean reviews the allegation. If it is not resolved at this level then it is referred to a tribunal
appointed by the Senate.
It is in students’ best interests to keep all of their research notes intact after handing in papers.
Prior approval of the instructor must be obtained if you intend to submit work that has
previously or concurrently been submitted, in whole or in part, for credit in this or any other
course. Consult the Writing Tutorial Service (215PA) and the Student Academic Success Centre
(SASC, 302 Tory) for more information on available services.
Please note that it is not permitted to submit identical (or near identical) assignments for two or
more courses.
Understand what it means: plagiarism results when someone uses the ideas or writings of
another and presents these ideas or writings as his or her own. Examples include:
1. Buying a paper from a research service or term paper mill.
2. Turning in a paper from a “free term paper” website.
3. Turning in a paper someone else has written for you.
4. Copying materials from a source without proper citation.
5. Using proper citation but leaving out quotation marks.
6. Paraphrasing materials from a source without appropriate citation.
7. Turning in a paper you wrote for another course.
When citing sources, it is best to present ideas using your own original words. If you fully
understand a source, you will be able to completely describe its themes and ideas in your own
words and from your own perspective. However, if you copy a passage that someone else wrote
and only change a few words around, you have committed plagiarism.
