Growing Up In Divided Societies

June 10th -11th 2010, Queen´s University Belfast

The conference aims to bring together scholars whose work focuses on the experiences of children who are growing up in ethnically and politically divided societies. The relative lack of scholarly attention on the subject highlights the need to address this from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, to take stock of what has been done so far, and to reflect on the future study of children in divided societies.

"UN Child Rights treaty 20 years on: Implementation still not satisfactory" says Commissioner Hammarberg

Realising children’s rights requires more than rhetoric – systematic and concrete actions are now needed
[16/11/09] The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has become one of the most well-known and broadly supported international human rights treaties. Practically all the states in the world have ratified it and thereby legally bound themselves to implement its provisions. As a result, the situation of children has been put higher on the political agenda. Yet, the actual implementation of the Convention has been less effective than we anticipated. The main reason is the absence of a systematic, comprehensive approach to children’s rights as a political priority.

CFP: Children and War: Past and Present

Children and War: Past and Present

International multidisciplinary conference to be held at the University of Salzburg, Austria, on 30 September - 2 October 2010. 
Organised by the University of Salzburg and the University of Wolverhampton (UK).
In recent years the volume of international research on 'Children and War', carried out by academics, governmental and non-governmental organisations and institutions as well as the media, has continually increased. At the same time there has been a growing public interest in how children experience military conflicts and how their lives have been affected by war and its aftermath.
Research topics are as varied as the disciplines and interests involved - often acting independently of each other. Therefore it seems time to review current research and to open new perspectives for future work by bringing together scholars from various academic disciplines, practitioners in the field, representatives of governmental and non-governmental institutions and the media.
All proposals which focus on any topic and theme on 'Children and War' are welcome, ranging from the experience of war, flight, displacement and resettlement, relief and rehabilitation work, gender issues, persecution, trafficking, abuse and prostitution, trauma and amnesia, the trans-generational impact of persecution, individual and collective memory, educational issues, films and documentaries, artistic and literary approaches, to remembrance and memorials, and questions of theory and methodology.


Call for Papers - Red Feather Journal

CFP: Red Feather Journal, an online, international,
interdisciplinary journal of children’s media culture

Red Feather Journal facilitates an international dialogue among scholars and professionals through vigorous discussion of the intersections between the child image and the conception of childhood, children’s material culture, children and politics, the child body, and any other conceptions of the child within local, national, and global contexts. The journal invites critical and/or theoretical examination of the child image to further our understanding of the consumption, circulation, and representation of the child throughout the world’s visual mediums. We welcome submissions that examine a broad range of medias: children’s film, Hollywood film, international film, Television, the Internet, print resources, art, or any other visual medium. Some sample topics include, but are certainly not limited to: studies of images of children of color; child as commodity; images of children in Africa, Asia, Middle East, South America, etc.; political uses of the child image; children in film; children in advertising; visual adaptations of children’s literary works; child welfare images; children and war; or any other critical examination of the child image in a variety of visual mediums. Red Feather Journal is published twice a year, in February and September, and adheres to the MLA citation system. Authors are welcome to submit articles in other citations systems, with the understanding that, upon acceptance, conversion to MLA is a condition of publication.
Interested contributor’s please submit the paper, an abstract, and a brief 50-word biography as attachments in Microsoft Word to debbieo@okstate.edu

Deadline for submissions for the February issue is December 15th 2009.
