This is the Final Call for Papers for the Multiple Childhoods/Multidisciplinary Perspectives conference to be held on May 20-21, 2011 at the Rutgers University, Camden, NJ, USA campus. Sponsored by the Department of Childhood Studies of Rutgers-Camden (http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu/) , the conference will convene scholars and practitioners from various fields to examine the questions and problems confronting childhoods today.
We are extremely excited to announce that Professor Elizabeth Chin of Occidental College, USA, and Judith Ennew, Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the University of Malaya, will deliver keynote talks at the conference. In addition, we expect to convene a panel of scholar-experts to address issues of normative evaluations and presumptions in childhood studies and practice. Scholars, practitioners and students interested in children and childhood studies are encouraged to attend.
In response to several requests, we have extended the deadline for submitting abstracts for consideration for inclusion in the program to November 30, 2010. For information, please visit the newly-revamped websitehttp://www.camden.rutgers.edu/multiple-childhoods/. There will be an award for Best Graduate Student Paper. Information on accommodations and travel logistics will be added over the next few months. So, return to the site often for updates.
