This study is concerned with cooperation and conflict in children’s texts, play and peer relations, with a view to better understanding how social cohesion begins to take shape during early childhood. The research will analyse cultural texts such as children’s picture books with thematic concerns about cooperation and conflict, and will also undertake visual ethnographies in early childhood settings in Hong Kong and Australia
