Seeking Panelists - SHCY 2015 Conference - Constructing Citizenship

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.

Seeking Panelists - SHCY 2015 - Last chance

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.
