Elizabeth Gaskell Campus, Manchester Metropolitan University, Hathersage Road, Manchester, UK, M13 0JA
10.30 – 4.00pm, 18th & 19th June, 2013

The aim of the conference is to provide a space for disabled children, young people, family members and allies (including practitioners) to share their ideas, knowledge and expertise and to celebrate disabled children and young people’s lives. We would like to invite disabled children, young people, their parents and carers (we would like to include people with physical, sensory and cognitive impairments as well as those people with mental health issues), as well as activists and academics in the field of disability studies and childhood studies to present at and to attend the event. This year’s conference theme is ‘Time for Change?’ We are inviting contributors to talk about changes in the lives of children, young people and their families and suggest that you might like to address some of the following questions:

§ what has changed?

§ how have you been involved in changing lives?

§ what changes would you like to see?

§ what are the barriers to and opportunities for change?

Day One will include accessible presentations and discussion points as well as opportunities to take part in workshop activities (further details to follow).

Day Two will include more formal presentations but we will particularly welcome presentations or discussion papers that tell a story, share a skill, some information or research in ways that try to be as accessible and creative as possible – for example, that use a range of presentations styles and media including photography, video and artwork.

To book your place visit:
We ask that you please register, stating any access requirements, two weeks before the event.

Please send us a short description of the ideas for your presentation by 10th May, 2013.

Call for papers- Child in the World Conference

One day conference: 9 November 2013
V&A Museum of Childhood, London
Keynote Speaker: Dr Karen Wells

· How have children’s lives been shaped by global processes and events, both past and present?
· How do children understand their place within the world and how has this sense of place changed or remained the same?
· How have children’s lives been shaped by experiences of global travel, of migration and displacement?

We invite contributions exploring these questions, particularly in relation to children’s everyday experiences of the global. We welcome papers which trace children’s voices and experiences via a range of methodologies and source materials, both tangible and intangible, such as the objects they use and own, the books and other materials they read, the programmes and films they watch, the technological equipment they have access to, the clothes they wear, the games they play, and the testimonials they themselves provide.

We encourage contributions from colleagues throughout the arts and social sciences, including in particular those working within the fields of childhood studies, geography, museum studies, children’s literature and culture. In addition to abstracts for 20-minute papers, we also welcome the submission of panels and of formats other than standard papers (such as lightning talks, posters or discussions).

Please send submissions by 13 March 2013 to

Qualitative data analysis training course

Apologies for cross-posting

Susie Weller (London South Bank University) & Rosalind Edwards (University of Southampton) would like to invite you to a National Centre for Research Methods Training Course

In-Depth Qualitative Data Analysis: I-Poems | 12th March 2013 | MRC, London

This hands-on workshop will explore a method of in-depth qualitative data analysis in which researchers work with interview transcripts to identify and interpret interviewees' subjectivity. The I-poem method focuses on the ‘first person voice’ or ‘voices’ in in-depth interviews to explore how interviewees talk about themselves. This analytic method is part of the ‘Listening Guide’ developed by Carol Gilligan and colleagues, and can be used with one-off interviews or a series of interviews with a research participant over a period of time.

The workshop will lay the foundation for the I-poem method through an introduction to and appraisal of the analytic approach. The workshop leaders will then provide a guide to constructing I-poems, tracing an interviewee’s senses of self within interview data. Participants will have the opportunity to be involved in some hands-on exploration of the method using case studies of children and young people drawn from the Your Space dataset of the Timescapes qualitative longitudinal study. Using this longitudinal study will enable us to look at change and continuity in interviewees’ sense of self over time.

2nd CFP Unruly Subjects: Governing Young People - Extended Deadline

Call for Papers: RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2013, London 28-30 August 2013

Sponsored by the Geographies of Children, Youth and Families Research Group
Session title: Unruly Subjects: Governing Young People
Conveners: Jo Pike, University of Leeds; Gill Hughes, University of Hull; Pia Christensen, University of Leeds; Peter Kelly, Edge Hill University
Session format: Paper Session
Session abstract
For many young people, growing up in the 21st century presents significant challenges. Contemporary youth is characterised by greater levels of risk and uncertainty, notably, but not exclusively in relation to education and employment. Such experiences are shaped not only by economic factors in the wake of the global financial crisis, but by increasing levels of uncertainty brought about by political instability, conflict, climate change, global threats to health, and technological and cultural change. Reflecting some of these concerns, geographers have engaged with the ways in which locally produced cultures of childhood and youth are shaped by global forces highlighting the absence of considerations of childhood and youth from discussions related to the global financial crisis (Morrow, 2011). While young people themselves have responded to these ‘crises’ in a variety of ways including protest, resistance and riot, there are further implications for the ways in which young people’s ontology and sense of self are forged within discourses that paradoxically position them both salvation and threat. This highlights what some have called the ‘ambiguous agency’ of children and young people who disrupt normative and prescriptive ways of being young in the 21st Century (Bordonaro and Payne, 2012).
In this session we call for papers that explore the tensions surrounding young people’s agency and new spaces and methods of governance that have materialised in response to contemporary crises of childhood and youth. In particular we are interested in work which seeks to gain a broader understanding of efforts to shape, mould and transform the hopes and aspirations of children and young people and that engages with the variety of methodological, theoretical and/or empirical challenges and opportunities, limits and possibilities that these governmental ambitions present.
Papers are invited that engage but are not limited to the following

• Young people’s engagement with practices of self governance
• The relationship between aspiration and young people’s sense of self
• Geographies of transformation and resistance
• Children, young people and agency
• The relationship between affective/emotional geographies and practices of governance

Please send abstracts of no more that 250 words to Jo Pike at by Sunday 10th February

Philosophy at Play Conference 2013

9-10 April 2013
University of Gloucestershire, Oxstalls Campus, Gloucester, GL2 9HW

Philosophy at Play is a two-day academic conference focusing on philosophical aspects of play.

Following on from a successful inaugural Philosophy at Play conference (April 2011), a second conference is being held at the University of Gloucestershire on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 April 2013.

"Philosophy at play?"

Play, players, and being at, in or out of play, have been concepts for philosophical debate in the ancient, modern and contemporary eras. The significance of play within ethical, existential and metaphysical philosophies is well-established, yet rarely are the names or work of key thinkers evident in policy or practitioner discussions about play.

The event aims to build disciplinary and paradigmatic bridges between scholars of philosophy and scholars of play, particularly children’s play.

We have received an excellent selection of over 40 proposals for papers to be presented at the conference, from practitioners and scholars from Scandinavia, the USA, Colombia, Germany, France and England. Further details of confirmed speakers and a conference timetable will be announced at a later date.

Keynote speakers

We are delighted to announce that the following have agreed to present keynotes at the conference:

Daniel Dombrowski
