Past Workshops

The Good Childhood

The Good Childhood workshop will explore all aspects of the quality of childhood, from what childrens' moral, intellectual and emotional needs and interests are, to how they should be met through parenting, public policy, and individual actions. We'll be reading a range of literary, historical, philosophical, and social scientific sources. The workshop is a continuation from last year, when the workshop met on a biweekly basis, functioning as a wide-ranging discussion group. This year we plan to function much the same way. A two-part public event showcasing some of the results of our discussions is planned for the early spring.
