Ethics studies of childhood: Developing an interdisciplinary research program
Principal Investigator: Franco A. Carnevale
Co-Investigators: A. Campbell, D. Collin-Vézina, M. E. Macdonald
Funding Source: Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council of Canada
This grant supports the development of an innovative and truly inter-disciplinary research team that is articulating a new field of inquiry: Interdisciplinary Studies of Childhood Ethics. In its first year, four research assistants helped the investigators critically examine the literature across a wide range of diverse disciplines, to identify current research priorities in childhood ethics. Moreover, the team has conducted ongoing consultations with an Interdisciplinary Panel of Expert Consultants. To date, the team has one publication in press and is currently working on four additional manuscripts as well as an operating grant proposal to be submitted in fall 2012.
