Children's relationships conference: extended deadline for registration

Call For Participation: Children’s relationships, embodied social capital and disability: connecting scales of inclusion and exclusion.

Loughborough University, Loughborough, LE11 3TU, UK.
10.00am – 5.00pm, Monday 8th July 2013.

Keynote speaker: Professor Gill Valentine
Panel members include: Professor Deborah Youdell, Professor Janice McLaughlin, Dr Anita Franklin, Jon Hewitt.

This one day conference is an end of project event. The project has explored how children’s social relationships play a part in processes of inclusion and exclusion in contemporary schooling. The research has examined how children’s everyday practices in school, home and leisure spaces creates embodied social capital, (re)producing disability as an identifier that that intersects with other ‘axes of power’ (e.g. class, gender, ethnicity) to reproduce or transform enduring material inequalities.

Findings illuminate issues such as: the significance of relationships to school and social inclusion, hierarchies of accepted identities, structural factors (e.g. transport, support networks, leisure activity provision), interventions made in children’s relationships, the role of special schools, and methodological approaches.

Further information about the project is available at the project website: http://socialcapital.lboro.ac.uk.webhost1.lboro.ac.uk/home/

We would especially like to invite parents, children and young people, policy makers, and researchers of education, children and youth, geography, sociology and disability studies to participate in this event.

The conference will include a keynote speech by Professor Gill Valentine, presentation of project findings, panel discussions, and workshops. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis. Please confirm attendance.

Extended deadline for registration: 28th May 2013. Email lboroconference2013@gmail.com for enquiries and registration.
