Brief overview: Magister Dissertation in sociology at the University of Copenhagen. Advisory or editorial board member of ten journals and other honorary tasks. Grants, organising of conferences etc.
Interrupted by a position as a scientific secretary at the international Vienna Centre, Austria, my research in Esbjerg, Denmark, during the s until was about social structure and life condition in socialist countries. Inspired by lessons learned during my Vienna stay I changed in to sociology of childhood and generation — a new branch, which I contributed to pioneering.
It was however not only a change; it was also continuity in practicing structural research : childhood is in my optic seen as a structural segment in a generational order. From to I held a chair and was a director of Norwegian Centre for Child Research, and from to I was professor of sociology with social structure, welfare, generation and childhood as specialisms.

Jens Qvortrup. Enlarge Image Flyer. In this volume, guest editor Qvortrup brings together contributions representing structural, historical, and comparative perspectives on the study of children and youth. Here, childhood is conceived as a structural feature of society, subject to the stable and changing forces of the larger social context, and comparable across time and cultures.
Dominant definitions of childhood until now have been characterized by individualistic, anticipatory, and protectionis factors — real society means adult society of which children are only marginal members but into which they are supposed to be growing. Contrary to this view, childhood in this chapter is understood as a social construction, a whole population group. As such, it has a permanent not transient character, it interacts with other parts of society, and it is thus already integrated in society. Childhood as a social construction is open to cultural and historical change and interpretation in a very different way from the single child.

ISSN In northern countries, a symbol of the consolidation of a knowledge area is the publication of a handbook - in Portuguese, manual or compendium - whose chapters give a state-of-the-art overview of their respective subjects. In , The Palgrave Handbook of Childhood Studies was published as recognition of the area of childhood studies. It is known that children were mainly investigated by psychology or by pedagogy and that social sciences have produced little about them, giving priority to studies on the family or the school.
