Forager Child Studies

(a message from the Forager Child Studies Group):

We would like to inform you of a new and exciting research project coming out of the forager child studies research team (

We are looking to conduct a cross-cultural analysis of the ecological factors that influence forager children’s participation in play and work activities across the lifespan. More specifically, we are looking for data made up of frequency of observations (from either focal follows or scan samples) spent in work, and frequency of observations spent in play for boys and girls in early childhood, middle childhood, and, if possible, adolescence.

If you have this kind of data, please contact us at

Also, please consider joining our listserv. Just started, this listserv will serve as place to share and learn about research on forager children!forum/foragerchildstudies
