Abstract

In this introductory article for the special issue ‘Childhood, Parenting Culture and Adult-Child Relations in Global Perspectives’, we provide an overview of our fields of study (childhood studies and parenting culture studies) by placing them in dialogue. We do so as a basis for drawing out themes emerging from the special issue, in order to explore potential synergies and open broader debates. We begin by tracing moves towards more relational approaches in the social sciences indicating their epistemological and methodological implications. Relational thinking provides a basis for countering antagonistic positionings of children and adults, allowing for circulations of childhood and parenting cultures to be interrogated in relation to new and enduring forms of inequity and changing state-family-capital relations. We suggest that this complicates existing conceptualisations of neoliberalisation while drawing attention to the need for further interrogation of the transnational nature of adult-child relations.
