CFP: Law and the Child in Historical Perspectives

Conference: The Law and the Child in Historical Perspective, 1400-2000
Place: Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
Date: June 1-2, 2014
Submission deadline for proposals: December 20, 2013
Description: »The Law and the Child will focus on law’s central role in changing understandings of childhood and children’s experiences, considering among other things selfhood, family, market relations, society, and state. Our hope is for a broad reach geographically and chronologically, from the Medieval World to the Twenty-First Century, and for papers that consider the multiple sources that intersect in the legal construction of childhood and in children’s lived legal experiences. These include race, class, gender, disability, sexuality, ethnicity, psychology, dependency, agency, citizenship, and (il)legitimacy. We also hope papers will address topics in both civil and criminal law.«
