Learning Outside the Lines: A Conference on Children and Youth in an Interconnected World

Save the date for a two day conference September 28-29, 2016 on campus!

Around the world, the experiences of children range from those with affluence, well-funded schools, and peaceful homes, to those who are impoverished, exposed to violence, and are victims of injustice. This conference seeks to widen and deepen our understanding of childhood and youth in relation to the inequalities of nation, gender, ethnicity/race, class, religion, and minority/majority belonging. It will examine children in conflict and war, as objects of consumption, and as displaced and migrating populations.

This conference explores the experiences of children and youth in the intersections of an interconnected world. Scholars and practitioners from throughout the world, offering Eastern and Western perspectives and representing multiple disciplines, will examine bold ideas and new thinking about young people in the world.
