CFP – “Researching children’s everyday lives: socio-cultural contexts”


Dear All,

You are warmly invited to attend the CSCY 5th International Conference entitled “Researching children’s everyday lives: socio-cultural contexts” to be held at the Kenwood Hotel, Sheffield, UK on 1-3 July 2014.

This conference will explore the idea of the ‘everyday’ as a key component of children’s lives, past and present and cross culturally.  To do this means moving away from a ‘problem’ focus on children and childhood by recognising that what counts as the mundane and every day for different children can be radically diverse in different times and places.

Key note speakers at the conference are: Professor Pia Christensen, University of Leeds; Dr Tom Cockburn, University of Bradford and Professor Margaret Mackey, University of Alberta, Canada.

Further information about this conference can be found on our <> , and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
