Harden, Jeni, Backett-Milburn, Kathryn and Jackson, Stevi (2000) Can't talk, won't talk?: methodological issues in researching children. Sociological Research Online, 5 (2).Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper we explore some current issues in, what has come to be called, the new sociology of childhood and how these relate to the process of researching children's lives in general, and to our own research in particular. We discuss the developmental model of childhood, before going on to explore ideas about children as, on the one hand, inhabiting a relatively autonomous realm and, on the other as part of the same social world as adults but with different sets of competencies. The implications of these differing positions for researching children will be assessed prior to a discussion of the design of our current research, on children and risk, and the wider implications of our reflections on the research process.
