European Social Science History Conference, Lisbon March 2008 / Education and Childhood
The Network on Education & Childhood of the European Social Science History Conference invites papers for the Seventh Conference, which will take place from 27 February - 1 March 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal. The Network is interested in proposals concerning childhood and education in all periods and focused on various issues in the domain.
In order, however, to stimulate and continue debates in the field of the history of education and childhood, we especially welcome papers (and panels) on the following themes, which also build on conferences such as those taking place during 2007 in Norrköping (Sweden), organized by the Society for the History of Children and Youth (SHCY), and in Hamburg (Germany), organized by the International Standing Conference on the History of Education (ISCHE). Furthermore, the aim is to plan sessions in collaboration with other networks within the ESSHC.

Migration: education and national identity
Orphans, adoption, illegitimacy and circulation of children

Methodology: new (interdisciplinary) approaches on the intersection with gender, ethnicity and disability.
Individuals interested in organizing panels on one of these themes may contact the network chairs of Education and Childhood. In arranging panels on these themes, the possibility to coordinate sessions with other networks will be explored.
To propose a panel or a paper it is necessary to follow procedures formulated at the ESSHC website: http:// www.iisg.nl/esshc. The deadline for paper/panel proposals and pre-registration is April 1, 2007.
