Pudd’nheads: Childhood in Colonial America
Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban of Grounded Goodwife are back! Pudd’nheads: Childhood in Colonial America examines the unique aspects of childhood between the late sixteenth and late eighteenth centuries and explores themes including birthing and childrearing practices, parenting, children’s health and education, naming, gender, play and rites of passage. Providing fresh historical perspectives on key features of children’s lives, this program offers compelling information on colonial children – as well as Native American and slave children, who are too often left out of conventional coverage.
