Call for Papers Open: CHILDHOOD AND TIME
The IX Conference on Childhood Studies
Tampere University, Finland, 11–13 May 2020
The theme of the biennial Childhood Conference in 2020 is Childhood and Time. The theme is deliberately broad and designed to invite scholars to discuss timely perspectives on childhood across a broad spectrum. We hope to inspire lively debates about how childhood and time interweave from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.
The conference is organised by Tampere University, the Tampere Centre for Childhood, Youth and Family Research PERLA, and the Finnish Society for Childhood Studies.
Keynote speakers: Prof. Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw, Prof. John Potter and Prof. Kaisa Vehkalahti
Panel discussion: Prof. Erica Burman, Dr. Stephanie Olsen, Prof. Spyros Spyrou and Prof. Hanne Warming
We also pilot a virtual extension of the conference to reduce the environmental costs of attending a conference (i.e., carbon footprint associated with air travel), as well as to minimize costs and alleviate barriers that hinder participation in the annual conference due to various travel related obstacles. Please see more information on the online conference here.
