'Endlessly revisited and forever gone': On memory, reverie and emotional imagination in doing children's geographies. an 'addendum' to "'to go back up the side hill": Memories, imaginations and reveries of childhood' by chris philo
The intention of this article is to expand some of the contexts and some of the conceptual and methodological trajectories presented Philo's (2003) paper. In particular I explore the relationship of adulthood and childhood as articulated through memory and how this may impinge upon the practices of adults researching into, and writing about, childhood. The key and complex question of the otherness of childhood is raised through the questioning of the extent to which adults can imaginatively re-enter childhood. Differing forms of memory, and how these may interconnect with emotion and imagination in writings about childhood are explored as a means of trying to make connection with the conditions of childhood. © 2003 Taylor & Francis Ltd.
