"Must Reads of Children's History" in collaboration with the Children's History Society UK

A recent initiative in collaboration with the Children's History Society UK has seen the first steps towards a list of the "Must Reads of Children's History". 

We have a tentative early list, made possible through the generous contributions of a number of children's historians in the UK, Australia and America, and are now sourcing further advice and help from other scholars in the field. 

If you have a few moments, we would love to hear any suggesions you might have. Books and journal articles are welcome, but we are specifically looking for publications that you feel have changed the way you think about the field, or your understanding of children themselves. When completed, the list will be openly available to all and will target newcomers to the field. 

If you have any suggestions, please send them to Emily at emily.gallagher@anu.edu.au or tweet the Children's History Society UK at @histchild
