CFP: Juvenile Delinquency in the 19th and 20th Centuries: East-West Comparisons

Centre for British Studies, Humboldt University, Berlin, March 12-13, 2011.

"The conference organisers are Heather Ellis and Lily Chang. We hope to bring together scholars working in a variety of fields, including history, sociology and literary studies to explore the ways in which concepts of childhood, youth and delinquency have been shaped by particular cultural contexts. How have attempts to define and problematize child and youth behaviours differed between Eastern and Western cultures? Have children and childhood been imagined differently in East and West?
Paper topics include:
* Definitions of juvenile delinquency
* Cross-cultural constructions of children, childhood and youth
* Delinquency as a Western/Eastern construct
* Generational relations
* Educational systems
* Governmental and legal responses
* Young people and revolution
* Young people and war
* Gender and delinquency
* Class and delinquency
* Race and delinquency
* Sexuality and delinquency
* Portrayals of delinquency in art or in the media".
Submission deadline for abstracts: October 15, 2010.
