Abstract [en]

The aim of the study will be to study children’s transition from preschool-class to the first compulsory school year.  Children’s transitions during that period will be studied using ethnographic methods, mainly participant observations and interviews, following a group of children during this transition. Seeing social process as a collective phenomenon it is the child groups managing and meaning making of the transition (Gubrium, Holstein & Buckholdt 1994, Corsaro & Molinari 2005) that is in the centre of my attention. The point of departure is to study how children act and shape their own and each others everyday lives rather than seeing children’s lives as something shaped only by adults (James, Jenks & Prout 1998, Corsaro 2005). A child perspective, in the sense that it is children’s meanings and actions that are studied and interpreted, will be used.
