Children and Social Change explores memories of childhood. Dorothy Moss examines experiences not commonly associated with everyday childhood, focusing on, for example war, migration, employment, religion, policing, and civil and industrial unrest. Her research explores how children engage with wider social change through their relationships with their families, communities and nations. It focuses on how they carve out space and time for themselves from complex social relations.  The research is informed by academic ideas about social memory, space and time, and discusses the selectivity of memories of childhood and how these are filtered through later social experience, family stories and research processes.
