Multiple Childhoods/Multidisciplinary Perspectives: Interrogating Normativity in Childhood Studies
Preliminary Announcement of a conference on: Multiple Childhoods/Multidisciplinary Perspectives: Interrogating Normativity in Childhood Studies. Organised by Department of Childhood Studies, Rutgers University, Camden, New Jersey, USA
Submissions for participation in a conference hosted by the Department of Childhood Studies of Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey, USA on Multiple Childhoods/Multidisciplinary Perspectives are invited. As a field, childhood studies has flourished in large part because scholars have recognized the necessity of moving between and beyond traditional academic disciplines and have resisted the idea that there exists one, normative version of childhood common to all. Indeed, Multiple Childhoods/Multidisciplinary Perspectives seeks participation from those who work to counter the presumption or invocation of an unproblematically normative childhood by making visible how varied material and institutional circumstances, ideologies and beliefs and daily practices serve to shape the unfolding lives and experiences of children.
