Network Representatives:


Call for Papers for the Children and Childhood Network of the Social Science History Association

We invite you to participate in the 37th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association by submitting a paper or session proposal to the Children and Childhood Network of the SSHA.  The conference will take place November 1-4, 2012 in Vancouver, British Columbia.  For more information on the conference as well as the general call for proposals, please refer to the SSHA website: http://www.ssha.org. The deadline for full panel or individual paper proposals is March 1, 2012.

The association particularly emphasizes interdisciplinary and transnational research, and the annual meeting provides a very supportive environment in which to present new work. The theme of the 2012 conference is “Histories of Capitalism,” though papers related to the conference location of Vancouver or other aspects of social science history are also welcome. Please see a preliminary list below of session ideas generated at last year’s C & C network meeting. Complete panels must include at least 4 papers and presenters from more than one academic institution. Other formats, including roundtable discussions and book sessions, are also possible.

Proposals can be submitted by means of a web conference management system on this site. If you haven’t used the system previously you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process. Graduate students presenting at the conference may apply for a travel grant from the SSHA (http://www.ssha.org/grants).

Let us know if you need any help making a submission or advice about a proposal. If you have any questions, please contact either of the Children and Childhood network co-chairs:
