Seeking panelists for the SCHY 2015 conference. I wish to propose a panel exploring the relationship between children and conceptions of citizenship. In particular, this panel will investigate the forms, language, and instruments of citizenship introduced to and used by children to construct individual connections to the state and to imagine their role within national and transnational processes.

Our theme is about familial relationships (including personal and sexual relationships beyond marriage) and their impact on childhood.
