Infantologies is a collective writing project designed to express and summarise important ideas, approaches and forms of advocacy in a short and condensed method, in order to present a network of diverse themes, arguments and evidence concerning infants. This is a collective writing project invited fifteen scholars to participate by writing 500 words with maximum of 5 references in a short period of time (normally a couple of weeks). It is a kind of clearing house for dominant statements about the importance of the world of infants, their evolving minds, and physical and social bodies, and the crucial impact of parental, family, cultural, social and physical environments. This writing project follows the methodology of collective writing and builds on recent EPAT collective writing projects. Jayne White curated the section ‘Infant Theories for Contemporary Times’ and Marek Tesar curated ‘Pedagogical Frameworks’. Other collective writing projects that resonate with infantologies will follow, including Infastasies and Infanticides.
