On 12 and 13 March 2011, The Centre for British Studies, Humboldt University, Berlin is hosting a two-day conference on the History of Juvenile Delinquency in the 19th and 20th Centuries: East-West Comparisons. The conference brings together scholars working in a variety of fields, including history, sociology and literary studies to explore the ways in which concepts of childhood, youth and delinquency have been shaped by specific cultural contexts. In particular, papers will explore the ways in which attempts to define and problematize child and youth behaviours have differed between been East and West.
Keynote speakers are Professor Barry Goldson (University of Liverpool) and Dr Barak Kushner (University of Cambridge)
