We invite you to participate in the annual meeting of the Social Science History Association (SSHA) by submitting a session proposal or paper to the *Childhood and Youth Network of the SSHA*. The conference will take place in Philadelphia, PA, between November 11-14, 2021, at the Double Tree by Hilton Philadelphia City Center.

The deadline for full panel or individual paper proposals has been *extended to March 16, 2021.*
The association particularly emphasizes interdisciplinary and transnational research, and the annual meeting provides a very supportive environment in which to present new work. The theme of the 2021 conference is Crisis, Conjunctures, Turning Points: Theory and Method in Turbulent Times? though papers on any other aspects of the history of children and childhood are also certainly welcome. Some possible topics include (but are not limited to):
Children as Political Agents
Ideologies of Childhood
Child Migrants and Refugees in Literature and Film
Childhood and the Environment
Children?s Literature of Atrocity
Child Policies in the US
Children, Youth, and Political Movements
Archive Stories and Questions of Silence
Children on the Move
The Politics of Schooling
Children as Political Subjects
Teaching Childhood and Youth
Toys, Play, and Material Culture
We especially encourage complete panels, which should include at least 3 papers and presenters from more than one academic institution and discipline. Other formats, including roundtable discussions and book sessions, are also possible. Please do get in touch with the network chairs if you have an idea for a session but need help gathering presenters.
Proposals can be submitted by means of a web conference management system at ssha2021.ssha.org. If you haven’t used the system previously you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process. Graduate
students presenting at the conference may apply for a travel grant from the SSHA.
