Teenagers and Contemporary Visual Culture

25 – 27 September 2012
Mansfield College, Oxford,
United Kingdom

This conference looks to examine, explore and discuss the prevalence of representations of teenagers within contemporary visual culture. Whether as a focus for consumption, entertainment or individual and social expression the teenager, as seen in its myriad manifestations within popular culture and the media would seem to express something about the world in the 21st Century and beyond but does it allow for teenagers themselves to address the nature of their own identity and individual agency within an increasingly implicated and convergent world?

Children's Lives - An exhibition of children's lives

The exhibition in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery will run from 24 March to 10 June 2012. It will explore the different ways people have thought about childhood as a stage of life, the relationships of children with their families and peers, the experiences of children in school, at work, and at the hands of various welfare institutions, and the ways that children have imagined the world. The exhibition will present the diversity of the city in all its forms, for example, ethnicity, gender, class, and disability. Children’s Lives will draw extensively on Birmingham’s collections to bring the voice of the child out of the archive and museum and in so doing will draw the past and the present into sharper focus.
