FCD Young Scholars Program 2014

Call for Proposals

The FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP) supports policy- and practice-relevant research on the development and learning needs of the nation’s young children growing up under conditions of poverty and low-income.  FCD believes that early learning is a solid first step towards lifelong development and that promoting research in this area, conducted in a holistic and culturally sensitive manner, will help address the disparities in children’s outcomes.

YSP encourages applications from scholars who are:

  • From historically disadvantaged or underrepresented groups, e.g. first-generation college graduates, and those from low-income communities.
  • Scholars who represent a variety of disciplines and methods, given that mental, physical, health, social, economic, institutional, and community factors impact early learning and child development.

Eligibility

Eligible researchers will have received their doctoral degrees (e.g., Ph.D., J.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., M.D.) within seven years of application submission. Ten years for physician applicants.

To view additional eligibility criteria, research focus and for more information about applying to the YSP please visit the YSP Program page of the FCD Website.

Timeline

March 10, 2014: Visit FCD website for full YSP guidelines

Early April 2014 – Early May 2014: Submit Letters of Intent (check FCD website for dates)

Hi All,
We’ve had an ACYIG Facebook page for quite some time, and the number of people who ‘like’ the page has climbed little by little. We’re now at 477 people who have accessed the posts and conversations there by ‘liking’ the page.
But I know there are far more people on this listserv, who could also benefit from the periodic posts and announcements on the Facebook page. Do you think we can get to 500 ‘likes’ by the end of the week??

What reviewers are saying about Parenting Culture Studies:


“These essays represent a sophisticated and courageous examination of parenting orthodoxies that have passed too easily into fact…. Sober, trenchant, witty and important.” – Zoe Williams, The Guardian 

“The authors of this timely collection are in the forefront of analyses of contemporary parenting. The discourses and practices of parenting are rarely held up for sustained critique. Readers of this book will be challenged to question the politics and rationales of parenting cultures in this provocative and cogently argued book.” – Deborah Lupton, University of Sydney, Australia

“This terrific collection of essays probes and destroys many of the reigning orthodoxies that have turned 21st century parenting into an activity marked by cultural and individual anxiety and the over-involvement of experts and policymakers. The scholars contributing to this volume together make a profound contribution to the study of parenting culture.” – Janet Golden, Rutgers University, USA

CFP: Children, Young People and Families in Changing Urban Spaces

 CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES IN CHANGING URBAN SPACES 

3rd and 4th September 2014

Centre for Children and Youth

University of Northampton, UK

 Organising committee:

John Horton, Faith Tucker, Sophie Hadfield-Hill (University of Birmingham), Michelle Pyer, Rebekah Ryder

Keynote speaker:

Tracey Skelton (National University of Singapore)

Themes:

This conference will bring together new, multidisciplinary research exploring the lives, issues and experiences of children, young people and families in diverse, international urban contexts. In three senses, we propose that it is timely for researchers, policy-makers and practitioners with an interest in this field to share experiences of working in changing urban contexts.

First, so many urban spaces are undergoing profound changes as a result of interconnected political-economic processes, such as economic crisis and austerity politics in the global north, or uneven development and large-scale urbanisation in the global south. This conference will bring together researchers and perspectives at the vanguard of these transformations.

Second, there is evidence that children, young people and families are positioned, and socially constructed, in diverse and sometimes unprecedented ways in changing urban contexts. In wide-ranging research on participation, activisms, political movements, play or independent mobilities, for example, it is evident that changing urban spaces may afford new opportunities or new limits to the agency of children, young people and families. This conference offers an opportunity for diverse research, from diverse locations, to be discussed.

Third, research on urban children, young people and families is itself changing. As a number of publications and collections have made clear, interdisciplinary collaboration and conversations are increasingly commonplace. For example, new insights have resulted from collaborations between: researchers in urban studies, childhood studies and children’s geographies; researchers, young people and youth workers; quantitative, qualitative and GIS/GPS-based research; academic researchers, planners, policy-makers and practitioners; or social scientists and the creative industries. Research on childhood, youth, families and urbanity has also been enlivened and extended through engagements with conceptualisations of the social-material and bodily-emotional-affective nature of identities, relationships and urban built environments and social-cultural geographies. There are surely numerous exciting ways in which researchers from diverse backgrounds might continue to collaborate.

With all this in mind, we invite papers which engage with children and young people in relation to the following topics:

  • Economic crisis and austerity politics;
  • Designing environments for children, young people and families;
  • Movement and mobilities;
  • Urbanisation and economic development in the global south;
  • Play and popular culture;
  • Disabilities, health and wellbeing;
  • Identities, subcultures and friendships;
  • Exclusions, vulnerability, support and care;
  • Innovative concepts and research methods in urban research;
  • Work and economic participation;
  • Social media and digital technologies in the city;
  • Policing, control and surveillance;
  • Urban play, identities, subcultures and popular culture;
  • Built environments and public spaces;
  • Participation, activism and citizenship.

Abstracts (c.200 words) should be emailed to: [email protected] by 16thApril 2014.

Conference information:

Information about registration for the conference will be available in due course.  The standard fee for this two-day conference will be £125; postgraduate fee £65.  (Additional charge for overnight accommodation.)
