The Subject of Childhood is a collection of essays on early childhood education/childhood studies that brings critical psychological, psychoanalytic, and cultural studies perspectives to bear on understanding the lives children live. Central concerns running through these essays are the emergence of subjectivity in the child; the complexity of conceptualizing the relationship between external cultural and social forces; and the internal sense of agency that we know that each child possesses. Together, the volume is a blending of interdisciplinary theoretical writing, personal autobiographical inquiry, and concrete examples from the author's work with teachers in schools and from his clinical practice as a child psychoanalyst. Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and professionals across the English-speaking world in early childhood education, childhood education, educational foundations, and cultural studies in education, this book functions as a core text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in child development, child psychology, sociology of education, childhood studies, and early childhood education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Michael O'Loughlin is a consummate teacher and a psychoanalyst, a combination of stances, thoughts, desires, fears, and style of being that finds [its] way into his writerly world and creates his investments and growing sense that thinking imagination begins only when we open the gates of both education and psychoanalysis to the chaos of the actual world. His commitment is to present himself and his subject as becoming, and he knows full well there is no such thing as a teacher or analyst without others (...). O'Loughlin has the wherewithal to introduce to educators the clinical style of the analyst's thinking, and share with the analytic community, the pedagogical thinking of the teacher." (From the Preface by Deborah Britzman)
