Victorian Childhoods
Keynote Speaker: Professor Colin Heywood, University of Nottingham

One Day Colloquium on 20 March 2010

Call for Papers
We welcome offers of papers on any of the following themes, or indeed any other aspects of Victorian childhood:

- the spaces of childhood: nursery, schoolroom, playground, the street, and the countryside
- children as angels, demons, invalids, observers, fairies, historical figures
- the cultural and material worlds of childhood: stories, songs, toys, games, clothes
- theories and constructions of childhood in both text and image

Please send a brief abstract of 250-300 words to Rosemary Mitchell at r.mitchell@leedstrinity.ac.uk by 18 September 2009. Ideally, all papers will be published in a Leeds Working Papers volume in advance of the colloquium, and will need to be submitted by 2 January 2010.

Colloquium convenors: Karen Sayer, Susan Anderson, and Rosemary Mitchell.
