Learning Bodies - The Body in Youth and Childhood Studies. Edited by Coffey, Julia., Budgeon, Shelley. & Cahill, Helen.
From the publisher: 'Learning Bodies’ addresses the lack of attention paid to the body in youth and childhood studies.
Whilst a significant range of work on this area has explored gender, class, race and ethnicity, and sexualities – all of which have bodily dimensions – the body is generally studied indirectly, rather than being the central focus.
This collection of papers brings together a scholarly range of international, interdisciplinary work on youth, with a specific focus on the body.
