Wartime Child Displacement: Comparing Historical and Contemporary Cases, Thursday 8 September 2016
The aim of this one-day workshop is to assess how examples from the historic past help us to address some of the questions about the current migrant and displacement “crisis” (frequently described as “unprecedented”).
The event brings historians, sociologists, psychologists, and lawyers together with members of public associations in order to:
- Exchange ideas emerging from on-going research about the past and the present.
- Gauge the ways in which questions and methods overlap and vary.
- Assess how these ways of working respond to public expectations.
The objective is to see what can be learned by academic specialists from several disciplines by listening to a range of witnesses, as well as to each other.

Marginal Childhoods – a Multidisciplinary Symposium, 8 June 2015
That the welfare, education and happiness of children should be central concerns of a just and sustainable society is a proposition few would dispute. Nevertheless, children and childhood occupy a marginal position in society at large, and indeed within many academic disciplines. “Marginal Childhoods” aims to bring children and the issues that affect them centre stage, in the context of a multidisciplinary symposium that will explore the academic potential for shared knowledge, perspective, methodologies, and lay the ground work for possible future collaboration. Programme and event registration.
