about

Childhood is increasingly saturated by technology: from television to the Internet, video games to 'video nasties', camcorders to personal computers.Children, Technology and Culturelooks at the interplay of children and technology which poses critical questions for how we understand the nature of childhood in late modern society. This collection brings together researchers from a range of disciplines to address the following four aspects of this relationship between children and technology:
*children's access to technologies and the implications for social relationships
*the structural contexts of children's engagement with technologies with a focus on gender and the family
*the situatedness of children's interactions with technological objects
*the constitution of children and childhood through the mediations of technology
_ This book represents a substantial contribution to contemporary social scientific thinking both about the nature of children and childhood, the social impacts of technologies and the various relationships between the two.

Editorial Reviews

"On the whole, the book is unified in its theoretical frame, which calls for studies on technology and childhood to contextualize the daily, embodied lives of children...the theme rings strong and clear throughout the introduction and throughout many of the articles." "Contemporary Sociology, 31 3."
