Feminism and the Politics of Childhood: Friends or foes?

Seminar at UCL Institute of Education, London, UK,

16-17th November 2015

This seminar will bring together community- and university-based academics and activists to unpack perceived conflicts between children’s interests and women’s interests (which themselves are heterogeneous) and, more broadly, intersections and antagonisms between various forms of feminism and the politics of childhood.

We invite you to submit an abstract to present or an application to participate. Deadline for abstract submission: 15th August 2015.

Details are available at https://feminismandchildhood.wordpress.com/, but please feel free to make informal contact in advance:
