The School of Education at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, is pleased to host its third Contemporary Childhood Conference. The theme of the conference is: Children in Space, Place and Time.
Children exist in their own social worlds while inhabiting a range of spaces and places in and over time. The question of how they are situated in the world we inhabit together is an important one, significantly in how they are portrayed through the likes of history, art, architecture, literature, philosophy, education, law, health, geography and politics.
University of Strathclyde Glasgow invites proposals for academic papers/symposia from across disciplines and nations to address the conference theme.
University of Strathclyde Glasgow welcomes both empirical and conceptual papers.
Abstracts of up to 200 words should be submitted electronically by the deadline of midnight (GMT) Friday, 13 April 2018. Abstracts should also note the author, the author’s affiliated institution, the paper’s title and up to five key words.
Invitations to present will be sent by 23 May 2018.
