29 June-3 July 2020, Deakin University Geelong Waterfront Campus
The inaugural “Children’s History” stream will be launched at the 2020 Australian Historical
Association conference. Despite some groundbreaking work being done by Australian scholars in the histories of children and youth, for a long time we have lacked our own organisation. In the United States the Society for the History of Children and Youth (SHCY) was founded in 2001, followed by the Children’s History Society (CHS) in the United Kingdom in 2015, both
contributing to the development of a flourishing international community of scholars. The
Asian-Australasian Regional Network (AARN) of SHCY was founded in 2017 and is developing
a network of scholars from this region or interested in the histories of children and youth in
this region. To celebrate this development, we invite submissions of papers or panels for this historic inaugural “Children’s History” stream.
Abstracts due 29 February 2020
