<div><p>What does it mean to be a child or young person today? How is childhood, youth, parenting and family shaped by society and culture, and how do current ideas compare with those of the past? Is this a good time to be young? What is the influence of age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability and geography? This module takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring these issues, drawing on a range of data, research and audio-visual material. It will develop your study and employability skills and provide you with opportunities to debate issues with academics and other students.</p></div>
