Journal of Playwork Practice aims to advance playwork research and practice by providing the first ever interdisciplinary platform for the publication and dissemination of scholarship relevant to playwork practice. The practice of playwork draws on a number of diverse disciplines for its theoretical and technical foundations, and we therefore encourage the submission of theoretical, empirical and methodological studies for peer-review from any discipline – please download the announcement please download the announcement here for further details.
JPP also includes a small practitioner section and welcomes contributions from playwork practitioners working in any context on the theory and practice of playwork, and original photo essays which illustrate specific aspects of playwork theory or practice.

CHILD STUDIES (TEMA BARN)
DEPARTMENT OF THEMATIC STUDIES
History of Children and Childhood – Current State of Knowledge, Future Challenges
FRIDAY 6TH OF NOVEMBER 2015
The overall aim of the workshop is to map out the current research field of the history of children and childhood and to identify the key issues that engage childhood historians today. Moreover, the workshop sets out to identify and examine the kind of challenges the future holds for childhood history. Historiographic discussions will be encouraged, as will discussions of the role of theoretical perspectives in historical studies of children and childhood. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary dimension of history of children and childhood will be highlighted and reflected on.
The workshop will mainly concentrate on modern history of children and childhood. Global perspectives and international comparisons are important contributions to a research field that largely have been defined by studies from a North-American continent and European countries. Furthermore, discussions about the relevance of using historical knowledge of children and childhood for the understanding of today’s situation as well as using current knowledge of children and childhood in the exploration of historical events and situations are welcomed.
At Child Studies the historical perspective represents an important part of the overall interdisciplinary approach. The workshop is organized as a part of a search process for a new professor and a call for a new professor at Child studies, with a historical bearing, will be announced during the fall of 2015.
For more information:
If you wish to participate, please contact Karin Zetterqvist Nelson ([email protected]) or Josefin Frilund ([email protected]). Places at the workshop are limited, so the quicker the better!
