|Title:||DIVERSE VIEWS OF CHILDREN IN SONG CHINA||Authors:||CHEN CHUN||Keywords:||perceptions of childhood, Song dynasty, law, paediatrics, elementary education||Issue Date:||16-Aug-2019||Citation:||CHEN CHUN (2019-08-16). DIVERSE VIEWS OF CHILDREN IN SONG CHINA. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This dissertation aims to show diverse views of children in Song China in specific historical contexts. I challenge the previous view that sees the children and childhood as self-explanatory concepts, I argue that the concept of children is a social construction rather than a biological reality. This thesis also reevaluates “the discovery of childhood” in the Song dynasty, avoiding the simplistic and progressivism statement. I contend that the meaning of the children is determined by different subjects through negotiation rather than defined by classics, official and pioneers.||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/162435|
