Abstract

This chapter brings together new research into infants' home upbringing that reflects cultural beliefs and practices. Visual narratives from home lives of three Australian-born babies and their fathers capture events in case examples. These events involve fathers with infants in playful participation around fence building, using cooking toys and experimenting with sounds in a recording studio. Each case example illustrates and analyses cultural elements and dynamic forms present in transitory, short-lived infant experiences. A method of inter-observer reliability is used. Each author/researcher examines the others' visual data to discuss, debate and from new impressions through the use of dialogue commentary. The unique situation of studying the simultaneous upbringing in Australia of three babies with different cultural heritages offers opportunity to examine the dynamics of infant reciprocity from a cultural -historical view. Collaborative discussion and analysis of data of a family life event reveal reciprocal interactions and embodies emotional engagement framed by different perspectives. We present the notion of conceptual reciprocity ( a reciprocal intention relating to nurturing and supporting learning through a shared experience) illustrating how it forms in the lives of three babies and their families.
