Title Children´s Use of Knowledge of Place in Understanding Social Relations
Author(s) Harju, Anne
Date 2011
English abstract
The article explores how children use different types of knowledge of place to make sense of their relations to other children. Participating are children aged 11-12 years in a small city in southern Sweden. The methodology used is place mapping with group interviews. A significant outcome is that the children connect emplaced and spatial knowledge in their efforts to understand themselves and others. Their emplaced knowledge is thus not separated from the spatial knowledge. Another significant result is that the participating children are engaged in an exchange of knowledge of place with other children and with adults.
