Overview: Historical geographies of childhood

A Vermont School

Mapping American Childhoods is a project exploring the historical geographies of childhood. The site includes my own project on the Home for Destitute Children in Burlington, Vermont during the early 20th Century; experimental visualizations of child-related data from diverse archives; compiled bibliographies and primary source references; a link to student work that came out of my class, Historical Geography: Mapping American Childhoods 1850-1950; and related external links.
