Description :
The A. explores some of the roots of children's geographies preoccupation with the micro-scale and argues that it limits the relevance of research, both politically and to other areas of geography. The A. proposes that the notion of a flat ontology might help overcome some difficulties around scalar thinking and provide means of conceptualizing sociospatiality in material and non-hierarchical terms. It is important to examine the nature and limits of children's spaces of perception and action.
