The BMCC Children and Youth Studies FIG brings together faculty members from a variety of disciplines whose work and research keep the child, children, and childhood as their central focus, providing critical thought and insight while locating them in different contexts, fields, and ideologies. The range of open topics within this field is as broad as the contexts of the experiences of children and childhood: war, health, rights, gender, poverty, wealth, policy, ethics, popular culture, globalization, school, family, home, sexuality, community, and representations in all modes of fiction.
We are proud to announce that an articulation agreement has been established between Brooklyn College’s Children and Youth Studies BA program and BMCC’s Liberal Arts Program. The Children’s Studies FIG is in the process of creating a Children’s and Youth Studies Liberal Arts Concentration Program for students interested in pursuing a degree in the field. Please contact us if you would like to be involved in this program.
We are very interested in providing a platform for faculty to discuss and present works in progress and offer research support. We invite submissions for presentations or discussion topics for our monthly sessions.
