This panel is designed to examine ideas of childhood based on the life writing of working class people. Life writing texts could include autobiographies, diaries, letters,compilations of life writing fragments, and/or solicited writings from various social organizations. Questions to consider include, but are not limited to, the folowing: How is child labor/schooling discussed in life writing from working class individuals? How are ideas of childhood vs. adulthood altered through the necessities of class and work? Questions such as these can highlight how ideas of childhood are frequently tied to middle class identity and development, especially during the nineteenth century.
