Workshop Child Studies Multiple – exploring multiple ways of thinking about children 

Twenty invited international and interdisciplinary scholars together with researchers from Tema Barn (Child Studies) will gather to explore new theoretical concepts in the field of Child Studies. The aim of the workshop is to bring together a variety of ways of thinking about children and the multiple worlds they are living in.

At Child Studies we have conducted interdisciplinary research with and about children and childhood for 30 years this year. As part of celebrating our 30-year anniversary, we arrange an international workshop.

On November 14-16 the Department of Thematic Studies – Child Studies will host an international workshop with the title Child Studies Multiple. Twenty invited international and interdisciplinary scholars together with researchers from Tema Barn (Child Studies) will gather to explore new theoretical concepts in the field of Child Studies. The aim of the workshop is to bring together a variety of ways of thinking about children and the multiple worlds they are living in.

We want the workshop to challenge new turns, angles, theories, concepts, methods and dichotomies developed in the field during the last ten years.

  • Mindy Blaise (Australia)

Child Studies Multiple is a theoretical workshop with a playful twist, so one of the hands-on sessions if going to be held by Suzanne Osten, an internationally known stage and screen director, screenwriter, and the former children’s film ambassador.

The workshop is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
