CFP - Children and Childhood Network of the Social Science History Association

The Children and Childhood Nework of the Social Science History Association is looking for paper or session proposals for their conference taking place November 21-24, 2013 in Chicago.  For more information on the conference as well as the general call for proposals, please refer to the SSHA website: The deadline for full panel or individual paper proposals is February 15, 2013. With the deadline approaching quickly, please get in touch with the network chairs if you have an idea for a session but need help gathering presenters.

The association particularly emphasizes interdisciplinary and transnational research, and the annual meeting provides a very supportive environment in which to present new work. The theme of the 2013 conference is “Organizing Powers,” though papers on other aspects of social science history are also welcome. Complete panels must include at least 4 papers and presenters from more than one academic institution. Other formats, including roundtable discussions and book sessions, are also possible.

Proposals can be submitted by means of a web conference management system at If you haven’t used the system previously you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process. Graduate students presenting at the conference may apply for a travel grant from the SSHA (
