I am interested in the making of values as a social practice. How do things come to be considered important, precious, priceless or worth our concerns? In the Global North, including Sweden, children themselves, what they do and produce are often constructed by various institutions to be all of the above. Rather than subscribing to the seemingly self-evident values of children, I ask how they come into being, are produced and sustained, negotiated and dismissed.
