Childhood and time are concepts that cross our everyday experiences. We think that we are children at the beginning of our lives and that we need to abandon childhood in order to to be adults. This understanding presupposes a concept of childhood and a concept of time. In this course, we’ll think together about alternative ways to relate to childhood and time.
