What else? some more ways of thinking and doing ‘Children's Geographies'
Abstract:‘Children's Geographies' could do more. In this paper we present a succession of key ideas currently arising in and of new and emergent theoretical, philosophical and conceptual work in the Social Sciences. We invite reflection upon each of these ideas in turn, with a mind, specifically, to ‘Children's Geographies'. In so doing, we make two broad claims. First, that greater engagement with some or all of these ideas might prove useful, enabling, thought-provoking, profound, constructive, challenging, telling, or interesting to ‘Children's Geographers'. Second, that—particularly given the nature of its extant concerns and efforts— ‘Children's Geographies' could do much more to speak back to (these) wider contemporary lines of thought.
