Our book ‘Parenting Culture Studies’ has now been published
Why have the minutiae of how parents raise their children become routine sources of public debate and policy making? This book provides in-depth answers to these features drawing on a wide range of sources from sociology, history, anthropology and psychology, covering developments in both Europe and North America.
An introductory film about the book by Dr Ellie Lee can be seen here, as well as about the individual chapters here. Further information here. The book is available to buy here (for a discount flyer, please email Ellie Lee).
