Childhoods 2005 Oslo

Interview with Richard Jenkins

Richard Jenkins is Head of Department and Professor of Sociology at Department of Sociological Studies, University of Sheffield, UK. He is being interviewed by Katrine Fangen who is a Post doctoral fellow at Department of Sociology and Human Geography, University of Oslo, Norway.

They discuss immigration and ethnic relations:

Using ethnicity as its example, Jenkins argues that, far from being merely a specialist sub-discipline within anthropology and sociology, the study of childhood is fundamental to any understanding of the human world, and hence to the social science project in general. It stands at the heart of our disciplines. For example, whether one is looking at the strength and nature of ethnic attachments, everyday inter-ethnic relationships, or the integration of recent immigrants, one cannot understand what is going on by either researching adults alone. In short, there is no such thing as 'adults alone'.
