Learning Objectives

The course aims to study the historical paths that lead to the so-called "discovery of Childhood": the attention-not always pedagogical-towards childhood as a new "productive social actor" in the phase of advanced industrialism. This examination will follow the analysis of the ways and times of "disappearance of childhood", caused by the way in which the training and care due has replaced, in the contemporary, the violation of the rights of this phase of human life

Detailed Course Content

The course will deepen issues related to the social history of childhood in the course of European civilisation and will investigate procedures and reasons that still link minority to marginality, discomfort and in many cases to deviance. It will also take into consideration the constitutional principles of juvenile criminal justice in Italy, in the new perspective of legal pedagogy.
