CFP for participation on a panel at the Society for the History of Childhood and Youth conference in June 2015 in Vancouver BC. I would like to create a panel on the relationships children and youth experienced during the Cold War. Possible topics can include but are not limited to the complex effects of large-scale events like the Cold War on children’s relationships that vary across time and cultural context, from the personal to the global; virtual relationships facilitated by letter writing or other international connections and cross-cultural influences; relationships forged through adoption or foster family organizations. My own paper will focus on the ways children functioned as “cultural diplomats” during the Cold War and created international relationships through participation in art and literary exchange programs. I welcome scholarship that does not focus on the U.S.
Please send a 250-word abstract and CV to Victoria Grieve (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Sept. 15, 2104.
