Children and Childhood Studies (CCS) is a new section within MAP/ACA and
is actively seeking proposals for the MAP/ACA Annual Conference. CCS
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.
