Welcome to Child studieschild_topp



Founded in 1988, Child Studies is an interdisciplinary research unit at the Department of Thematic Studies, Linköping University in Sweden. The main focus of research is on children and childhood. The faculty, as well as all doctoral students have been recruited on a nationwide basis from history, anthropology, psychology, linguistics, social work, and related fields. New doctoral students are accepted about every other or every third year. Until now, we have published between 40-50 doctoral dissertations (cf, list of Dissertation Abstracts), plus published many books, book chapters, and articles.
