We are still looking for one more panelist (or potentially a panelist and a commentator) for the 2015 SHCY conference. Our theme is about familial relationships (including personal and sexual relationships beyond marriage) and their impact on childhood. We are also interested in the lifelong impact of children's experience with family relationships. We have papers on modern American and early modern Britain and will consider papers from any time/place.

We are pleased to announce that the latest issue of Girlhood Studies has been published by Berghahn Journals.
