Centre for the History of Childhood Seminars and Events

The Centre for the History of Childhood aims to promote the study of children, youth and childhood in the past through supporting research within and beyond Oxford, fostering a community of researchers and sharing new research through public engagement activity.

Seminars are works-in-progress, designed to offer a space to researchers working on childhood-related themes to share ideas and to get feedback on new work. All welcome – and to join us for lunch afterwards.

Seminars take place in the Sophia Sheppard Room, Magdalen College, and online via Microsoft Teams, unless otherwise stated.

To find out more, join the mailing list: web.maillist.ox.ac.uk/ox/info/history-of-childhood or follow us on twitter (@HistChildOxford)

If you would be interested in presenting a paper or organising a discussion session, please email mailto:sian.pooley@magd.ox.ac.uk

For online access, Microsoft Teams links will be sent to the mailing list in advance or email mailto:sian.pooley@magd.ox.ac.uk for a link.
