The current edited book devotes considerable attention to childhood agency and the overlap between childhood and other aspects of social life such as gender, religion, disability, and so on, the phenomenon of "intersectionality." The volume's emphasis upon childhood agency and intersectionality is an innovation found throughout this edited volume, although individual contributions also experiment with other new approaches to childhood studies.
