Children and Childhood Studies (CCS) focuses on the societal, cultural, and political forces that shape the lives of children and the concept of childhood contemporaneously and throughout history. CCS research may originate in any discipline, including: the humanities, the behavioral and social sciences, or the hard sciences. We especially encourage multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary research.
H-Childhood is an edited network focused on the history of childhood and youth. Subscriptions to H-Childhood are free. The H-Childhood network is co-sponsored by the Society for the History of Children and Youth (SHCY) and H-Net.
