March 2014
Melbourne, Australia
Gillian Shepherd g.shepherd@latrobe.edu.au and State Library of Victoria and the Wheeler Centre
31st December 2013
La Trobe University is delighted to host the 2014 conference of the Society of the Study of Childhood in the Past. The timing and conference theme "Telling Tales: Children, Narrative and Image" are designed to coincide with the 2014 Children’s Book Festival (late March: dates tbc) in Melbourne. The Children’s Book Festival, organised by the State Library of Victoria and the Wheeler Centre, is a major festival which attracts over 10,000 members of the public to its various events and displays. A centrepiece of the 2014 Festival will be an exhibition of works from the Scholastic Dromkeen Children’s Literature Collection, recently moved to the State Library of Victoria. The Collection consists of some 7500 original artworks from Australia’s best-loved children’s books. The SSCIP international conference will add an academic component to the Festival and aims to bring together scholars from a wide range of academic disciplines including literature, anthropology, history, sociology, archaeology and art history to consider the forms and roles of narrative, and its evolving nature, in the lives of children from antiquity to the modern period. Major conference themes include:
  • Telling childhood: children in narratives, narratives for children
  • Making stories: adult vs child creators, interactive narrative, translation
  • Art and narrative: illustration, graphic novels, stories through images
  • Children and ‘the other’: animals, monsters, ghosts, myths and fairytales
  • Remembering children: memory and memorialisation
  • Remembering childhood: narratives of lives, labour, experience, immigration, acculturation, Stolen Generations
The conference themes are designed to widen knowledge, generate new perspectives and stimulate avenues for further research on childhood in the past.
Abstracts (250 words) are invited for presentations of up to 30 minutes.
