Children and Childhood Studies (CCS) is an area of study that focuses on the societal, cultural, and political forces which shape the lives of children and the concept of childhood. CCS research draws from the behavioral and social sciences as well as the arts. Papers in this area examine the impact of popular culture on children and childhood, as well as the role of children and young adults as influencers and creators of that popular culture.
