One size doesn’t fit all: a conference about the shaping of childhood
“Sheffield Institute of Education will be hosting its inaugural ‘Children’s Conference’ and we want you to join us!
The conference will investigate the diverse factors which shape childhood; from reading to pop music, from family, friends and teachers, to politicians and the media. Together we will be thinking about how children’s lives are shaped by their experiences, the contexts in which they live, and their relationships with those around them.
Professionals and academics will be sharing their work into the diverse notions of childhood, multi-agency working and application of research into the lives of children, and you will have the opportunity to also share your experience and discipline knowledge.
Whether you are planning a career that will involve working directly with children, or just have an interest in children’s lives and want to help make positive changes, this conference will give you the space to debate/discuss, reflect and apply theory and practice”
