Dear all,

It may interest you to know that in 2009 the Centre for the Study of Childhood
and Youth at the University of Sheffield established a network of global
childhood studies researchers. The aim of the network is to explore ways of
expanding childhood studies beyond Western Europe and North America, both
conceptually and methodologically in order to ensure that the priorities and
perspectives of childhood studies researchers focusing on the global south are
taken into account in existing paradigms of childhood studies.

One component of this network is the establishment of a mailing list which
seeks to facilitate networking and collaboration amongst global childhood
studies researchers. The mailing list will enable participants to share
information about events and publications, explore opportunities for
collaboration in research and other projects, highlight their research
achievements, share recent research findings, seek advice from others and
engage in discussion on topics that are current in childhood studies,
especially within a global context with likeminded people.

Posts made to this mailing list will normally be sent to members on a weekly
basis by the moderator. However, exceptions will be made.

To subscribe to the mailing list visit its home

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Afua Twum-Danso, the
list moderator (a.twum-danso at
