‘True geography [ ] quickly forgotten, giving away to an adult-imagined universe’. Approaching the otherness\ud of childhood

Article English OPEN
Jones, O. (2008)

In this paper I seek to explore the idea of the otherness of childhood. I suggest that there are considerable\ud differences between the becomings of children and the becomings of adults. In the face of these a number\ud of questions need to be asked about adult–childhood relations in society and about academic approaches\ud to children and childhood, particularly in terms of representing childhood and the implications of such\ud representing. The paper sets out the idea of otherness, locates this within current debate about the crisis of\ud childhood, and then argues that non-representational approaches might be particularly relevant to\ud progressing children’s geographies. These approaches stress modesty, practice, experimentation,\ud messiness, creativity and openness.
