Day in the Life

Project: Other


A 'Day in the Life' is an ecological investigation of aspects of culture in the interactional construction of childhood in diverse global communities. Regarding culture as a dynamic, interactionally produced dimension of the child's activities and socialization, as it is for her caregivers, the project methodology endeavours to enact as well as explore such processual notions. A collectively authored book has just been published: Gillen, J. & Cameron, C.A. (eds) (2010) International perspectives on early childhood research: A Day in the Life. Palgrave Macmillan.

Together with C.A. Cameron of the University of British Columbia, Julia Gillen directs 'Day in the Life' project.
