Friends and Colleagues

This is the Final Call for Papers for the Multiple
Childhoods/Multidisciplinary Perspectives conference to be held on May
20-21, 2011 at the Rutgers University, Camden, NJ, USA campus. Sponsored by
the Department of Childhood Studies of Rutgers-Camden (*

, the conference will convene scholars and practitioners from various fields
to examine the questions and problems confronting childhoods today.

We are extremely excited to announce that Professor Elizabeth Chin of
Occidental College, USA, and Judith Ennew, Visiting Senior Research Fellow
at the University of Malaya, will deliver keynote talks at the conference.
In addition, we expect to convene a panel of scholar-experts to address
issues of normative evaluations and presumptions in childhood studies and
practice. Scholars, practitioners and students interested in children and
childhood studies are encouraged to attend.

In response to several requests, we have extended the deadline for
submitting abstracts for consideration for inclusion in the program to
November 30, 2010. For information, please visit the newly-revamped website

accommodations and travel logistics will be added over the next few months.
So, return to the site often for updates.

Kindly pass along to your networks.
