Seeking Panelists - SHCY 2015 - childhoods beyond the binary

Seeking two papers on the theme of childhoods "beyond the binary." How have individual children, groups of children, or theories of childhood, challenged the binaries of sex and gender in the past? How do the categories of age and gender intersect?

My paper will explore a manuscript memoir of a 19th-century American woman educator who chose to wear boys' clothes and be called by a boy's name during childhood.
