Hello,

Looking for 1-2 panelists for "Children and Youth on the Move" conference, convened by the Children's History Society, which will take place at the University of Greenwich, London, June 21-23 2018 (https://histchild2018.wordpress.com/).  

Our proposed panel theme will be on the intersection of global youth mobilities and organizational, communal and personal development during the 20th century.  Two papers have already submitted: 1) on transnational youth intellectual tourism from Lebanon to Europe, West Africa, India, and South America during the 1930s-1950s and 2)  on the emergence of youth knowledge communities on the Soviet Hippy Trail during the 60s-70s.  

 
Ideally, we would like 1-2 papers that complement these papers, speak to the themes of global youth mobility and societal development, and take these themes before/beyond the 1930s-70s in places outside the Middle East and Soviet Union (preferably Africa or East Asia, but open to other regional foci).  

If interested, email dylan.baun@uah.edu as soon as possible.  300 word abstracts and 2-page CVs will be due internally to dylan.baun@uah.edu on Monday October 30th in preparation for November 1st deadline.
 

Best,
