Call for Papers: Sociology of Childhood – Theorising Childhood
The European Sociological Association, Sociology of Children and Childhood Research Network is organising a Mid-term Symposium in June 18-20, 2012, University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Please submit your abstract and full contact details as electronic files no later than the 28th February 2012.
Although the focus of the symposium is around theorising childhood the papers for the sessions do not have to deal with the overall theme but is open to all core areas of the sociology of childhood. We invite experienced and young researchers from various disciplines sensitive to the sociology of childhood to participate. Although a particular focus to presentations and discussions will centre on theorising, participants are welcome to discuss also their implications for interdisciplinary work on childhood.
Send the abstract to Tom Cockburn (t.d.cockburn (at) bradford.ac.uk) no later than the 28th February 2012.
