CHYS 1F90 Goals Childhood and youth From the individual to society Through multiple perspectives Across a range of topics Deepening skills Links to upper level courses Paradigms Shifting ideas Faith Truth and reason Skepticism and complexity A) Modernism Link to positivism: E.g. when we study the stages of infant development, we believe that we can access the truth or reality of development -through culture and history Link to progress: - e.g. the idea that with a stronger grasp of child development we can ensure optimal development -science seen as a way to improve society Link to grand narratives: e.g. seeking to understand universal processes of childhood development across time and place -something about being a child that is unchanging; development the same everywhere Link to essentialism: age –things about development that are unchanging gender –children being inherently masculine or feminine; their essence ethnicity –we assume that someone can be categorized by their ethnicity dis/ability –someone’s disability being inherent in them rights –everyone has rights because it is inherent in humans B) Critical theory -Karl Marx saw that inequality was imbedded within capitalism The truth of inequality e.g. class, age... Schissel –hierarchies in society; talks a lot about youth and work Grand narratives: that there are broad-based patterns to inequality -the way you decide your economic base shapes everything else; such as how you view family, etc. Truth hidden via ideology How is it that people put up with laws and policies that support the rich getting richer? 3 -we are all walking through a cloud of meritocracy individualizing; this cloud says that meritocracy is this fair
