Call for Papers for the Childhood & Youth Network of the Social Science History Association
Our apologies for duplicate postings. You are included on this mailing because you have in the past participated in a panel sponsored by the Childhood & Youth Network at SSHA. Please forward this call to anyone you believe might be interested.
We invite you to participate in the 39th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association by submitting a paper or session proposal to the Childhood & Youth Network of the SSHA.
The association particularly emphasizes interdisciplinary and transnational research, and the annual meeting provides a very supportive environment in which to present new work. 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. Please do get in touch with the network chairs if you have an idea for a session but need help gathering presenters. Among the topics we are especially interested in exploring are children as migrants; children and revolutions; indigenous children and childhood, child labor and globalization; gendered experiences of childhood; and inequalities in children's literature.
Proposals can be submitted through the web conference management system at http://conference.ssha.org. 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 the Childhood & Youth network co-chairs, listed at the top of this page.
