Memoir of Tanzania: Learning about Early Childhood Projects in Developing Countries
Penn, Helen
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v18 n1 p80-90 Mar 2017
This article considers the contribution of memoir as a method for understanding complex early childhood issues. It recounts the author's first visit to Tanzania, a low-income country with a chequered history of independence from colonial rule. The article uses memories from that initial visit to reflect on the changing interpretations of colonial history and early childhood interventions. Looking back, it also considers the impact of that visit on the author's own work trajectory, as an epiphany which led to new areas of work and conceptualization.
