Childhood and Materiality

Welcome to Childhood and Materiality, the VIII Conference on Childhood Studies in Finland! The Conference will take place on May 7- 9, 2018 at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.
 
The theme of the 2018 conference, Childhood and Materiality, is deliberately wide-ranging and designed to invite scholars to explore materiality and childhood across a broad spectrum. We hope to inspire lively debates from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives about many aspects of childhood and materiality. See conference theme and call for papers.
 
The conference is organized by the University of Jyväskylä, the Finnish Society for Childhood Studies, and the Nordic child culture network BIN Norden. 
 
The Conference on Childhood Studies is a well-established multidisciplinary forum for research on children and childhood. The conference has been held annually since 2008 in different parts of Finland and organized in cooperation  between the Finnish Society for Childhood Studies and a local partner.
