Conference theme:  
"Space and Childhood in History"
University of Nottingham,
Great Britain
June 25-27, 2013

The Sixth Biennial Conference of the Society for the History of Children and Youth will be held June 25-27, 2013, at the University of Nottingham in Great Britain.

The Program Committee invites scholars to submit proposals for formal panels, roundtable discussions, and research-in-progress workshops on any aspect of the histories of children and youth, from any place and in any era. But we are especially interested in sessions that examine and compare how space and childhood are mutually constitutive in historically and geographically specific settings. Our call, inspired by the French political philosopher Henri Lefebvre, posits that for any person, including children and youth, there is a dynamic rather than a static relationship between a physical place, its social make-up, and childhood as an ideal or imagined condition. The production of space, as Lefebvre famously insisted, happens in the physical world, the social world, and the imagined world. We ask scholars to investigate space not just as a backdrop for the lived experiences of children but as a tangible, social, and discursive construction, which shapes and is shaped by the lives and experiences of children. Although the committee prefers proposals for complete sessions and panels that incorporate international representation and global perspectives, individual papers will also be considered.

Session guidelines
Sessions will last approximately 90 minutes. At least fifteen minutes should be reserved for audience discussion. This may mean fewer—or shorter—formal papers, entertaining comments from the audience rather than scheduling a formal commentator, etc.
