Abstract [en]

This set of four papers, presented at the Conference: Children, Health and the Body, presents a range of considerations of issues in the study  of childhood. The day began with Alan Prout's paper; he discussed recent theoretical developments in the sociology of the body, and their usefulness for considering the case of children. The following three papers considered intersections of theory and empirical data; they focus sed on studies of children in relation to health, progressing through three ages of childhood. Sonja Olin Lauritzen considered mothers' accounts of health in their babies, in relation to theories of health and health care. Gill Bendelow took as her starting point the sociology of the emotions and discussed related issues in the embodied experiences of primary school age children. Shirley Prendergast took the case of girls and boys in secondary school to discuss the impact of social structures and group dynamics on young people's daily experience at school, with particular emphasis on the construction of gendered identities.
