Brief description How we best nurture and socialize the next generation of Australians is currently a matter of critical debate. Yet modern Australian attitudes to childhood and practices of child-rearing were first formed in the crucible of pre-modern Europe. Our proposed history of children's experiences in England c. 1400-1750 will provide a rich understanding of the foundations of present-day theories and practices of child-rearing. It will enable us to distinguish universal features of child-rearing from those which change over time, and to maintain Australia's international reputation for top-class research and research training in pre-modern history and culture.
