We are pleased to announce the launch of a new series entitled Feminist Thought in Childhood Research at the Gender and Education Conference this year.
Edited by Professors Jayne Osgood (Middlesex University, UK) and Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw (University of Western Ontario, Canada) and published by Bloomsbury Academic, the series will be launched at the Gender and Education Association conference on Thursday 27th June at 12pm in Portland Building, Room 2.33abc. All conference attendees are very welcome to bring their lunch and come along to the launch for the chance to find out more about the series as well as opportunities to contribute to it.
Drawing on feminist scholarship, this series explores the use of creative and experimental modes of researching and practising in childhood studies. Recognising the complex neo-liberal landscape and worrisome spaces of coloniality in the 21st century, books in the series provide a forum for cross-disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary conversations in childhood studies that engage feminist decolonial, anticolonial, more-than-human, new materialisms, post-humanist and other post-foundational perspectives that seek to reconfigure human experience. The series offers lively examples of feminist research praxis and politics that invite childhood studies scholars, students and educators to engage in collectively to imagine childhood otherwise.
The series has three volumes available so far:
- Feminists Researching Gendered Childhoods: Generative Entanglements, edited by Jayne Osgood & Kerry H. Robinson
- Feminist Research for 21st-century Childhoods: Common Worlds Methods, edited by B. Denise Hodgins
- Theorizing Feminist Ethics of Care in Early Childhood Practice: Possibilities and Dangers, edited by Rachel Langford
The series editors welcome proposals for new books – both authored and edited collections, from early career and established scholars – addressing past, present and future childhood research issues from a global context.
Delegates of the GEA Conference 2019 will also have the opportunity to receive 35% off the first three books in the series – so look out for a discount flyer in your delegate pack!
