The Child: A Persons Project

2nd Global Conference The Child: A Persons Project

Saturday 7th July 2012 – Monday 9th July 2012
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

CFP: After a hiatus of one year, the Childhood Project is returning. This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference project seeks to investigate and explore all aspects of childhood. The period of life prior to adulthood is one of dramatic change and development of physical, intellectual, psychological, and many other types of characteristics. The nature of childhood and its significance as a
separate phase of life, however, is viewed quite differently in different cultures and in different historical eras. This conference will look at all aspects of the experience of childhood as well as the social and cultural perceptions of children and childhood.
Deadline: 13th January 2012

Sugar and Spice: Global Girlhood in the Cinema/Global Cinema and the Girl

Call for articles

The figure of the girl is an intriguing one for cinema specialists. The focus of angst as possible victim of processes of 'sexualisation', the symbol of (imagined) childhood innocence, a metaphor for the uncertain and precarious nature of subjectivity, the site of intrigue and nostalgia for adults, the figure of the girls speaks to many strands of film theory and history: feminist questions of representation of female subjects, historical accounts of childhood and girlhood in the cinema, and philosophical engagements with the possibilities of the subject in film. Although recent work in sociology and film studies has addressed girlhood in Hollywood cinema as part of interest in post-feminist representations, we seek to complicate this reading through employing a comparative lens in terms of history and geography. This edited collection aims to explore the figure of the girl across time and space in the cinema. We are therefore interested in accounts from different movements and moments in global cinemas on the inflections of this figure. At this stage, we are looking to attract provisional expressions of interest that we will collate and put together as a proposal for a collection with a major publisher.

Deadline: 20th May 2012

Building Capacity for Ethical Research with Children & Young People (report)

The project has drawn on and enriched the existing knowledge base about ethical research within the Childwatch Network, and capitalised on the information shared at the Child Participatory Research Roundtable at the 2009 Childrens Rights at a Crossroads Conference in Addis Ababa. It has provided useful information about the ethical issues and challenges facing researchers undertaking research with children.
Existing resources and publications that provide guidelines to researchers have been identified and collated. The information can be used to expand the discussion on appropriate Child Research Methodologies, interface with the work of the Childwatch Training Courses for Young Researchers to build research capacity.
