Ethical Research Involving Children

Ethics and Research with Young Children: New Perspectives.

Schulte, C. M. (Ed.) (2020). Ethics and Research with Young Children: New Perspectives. London: Bloomsbury. ISBN: 978-1-3500-7647-1

Publisher’s Description: As researchers and theorists, teachers and teacher educators, parents and grandparents and advocates for children, the authors featured in Ethics and Research with Young Children share a common inclination to counter the idea of an ethics that is conventional-i.e., an ethics that reinforces existing models and discourses, which position children as irrational and incompetent; that de-anonymize children’s ways of working and being in the world; that reduces and distorts the social, cultural and political forces that shape children’s everyday realities; and, that routinely subtracts from these realities the complex responsibilities that adults have (especially as researchers) to recognize ethics as situated, relational, intersectional, and provisional. Aligned with the interdisciplinary commitments of a Childhood Studies approach and informed by a range of theoretical and practical frameworks, the perspectives offered in this volume are grounded in relationships between and among adults and children, their shifting social, cultural, political and material realities, and a world of ideas and experiences that impel them to face and reorient their ethical commitments to each other.
