CfP: 'From Trauma to Protection', deadline: 30 September 2017

This is a reminder that the above conference, to be held at the University of Warwick on 19 and 20 April 2018, is continuing to accept abstract submissions until 30 September 2017.

'From Trauma to Protection: the twentieth century as the children's century?' seeks to bring together scholars from a variety of historical fields and related disciplines to interrogate the place of trauma and childhood in the twentieth century. How were ideas of trauma constructed medically, psychologically and sociologically by professionals working with children? How were these translated into practical efforts at alleviation by NGOs, government agents and other groups? And how did children themselves view these efforts and make sense of their own experiences of maltreatment or danger? 

We would also like to announce that we are currently seeking submissions for a special conference panel on children and genocide; for which submissions covering a range of national contexts and exhibiting a range of methodological approaches would be welcome.

More information, and an extended call for papers, can be found on the conference webpage: www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/history/chm/events/childrenscentury 

Please send enquiries and abstracts (of no more than 200 words) to childrenconferencewarwick@gmail.com by 30 September 2017.
