CFP: Childhood and Youth in Pre-industrial Scotland
CFP Edited Collection: Childood and Youth in Pre-industrial Scotland
Children and youth play a vital role in any society. The wellbeing and future direction of religion, politics, the economy, individual communities, and social and cultural reproduction, as well as the legacy of individual families, all rest in the training and upbringing of the young. Despite this importance, research on medieval and early modern Scottish children and youth has been limited. This collection seeks to build on some of the work in Finding the Family in Medieval and Early Modern Scotland (2008) and to address the gap in the literature by providing a greater context and more holistic understanding of the human experience within the pre-industrial Scottish past. To this end, the editors invite essay proposals for an edited collection on childhood and youth in medieval and early modern Scotland. We particularly welcome proposals from a breadth of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, as well as papers that examine a diversity of childhood experiences, representations, and expressions.
Proposals of 500 words that explore any aspect of Scottish childhood and youth in the pre-modern period will be considered. All essays will be subject to blind refereeing.
Editors for the project are Elizabeth Ewan (University of Guelph) and Janay Nugent (University of Lethbridge). Proposals are due by August 1, 2012, with decisions to be announced September 1, 2012. Final essays will be due February 28, 2013. Please note that this collection will not be published before the next REF. Please send copies of your proposal to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org .
