- Abstract in English : OUTLINE: Children’s everyday lives increasingly take place in institutional settings outside the home and children are in important sense explorers of media and information technology. This restructuring of time and frequent shifts of physical and imaginary spaces have profound implications for children’s lives. This paper focuses on how changing urban settings restrict or open up different kinds of relationships and activities in children’s leisure time in Norway. How do six to twelve-year-old boys and girls of different social classes, ethnic affixations and ages differentially experience, understand and reshape changing contexts of space and time, and what do these changes mean to them? There are negative as well as positive aspect in the conclusion of this paper.
