Abstract: This paper argues that children and childhood constitute a ¿white space¿ in organization studies, which should now be explored, mapped and analysed.Rather than being separate, children and organization are deeply implicated in one another, which provides a rich basis for theoretical inquiry. The paper draws on Spivak's concept of the subaltern and on actor-network theory to articulate how and where organization studies might critically engage with, and find a place for, children and childhood. It frames such an inquiry around six potential research trajectories: epistemological, methodological, ontological,temporal, political and reflexive.
