6th Annual Childhood Studies Jamboree 1 March 2017 – register your place now!

You are invited to the 6th Childhood Studies Jamboree on Wednesday 1st of March 2017. The session will run from 2-5pm and will be followed by some refreshments.

The Jamboree is an event organised by Listening to Children students and conveners, with support of the UoE Childhood and Youth Studies Network. We are finalising our location – which will be in the University of Edinburgh George Square area.

You will hear and learn about cutting edge research that our colleagues are carrying out with children and young people. It is a fun opportunity to meet other childhood/youth studies students and early career researchers, and try out methods of working with children and young people through 2 interactive workshops. This year we once again have wonderful workshop choices, from engaging children as co-researchers to the ethics of ethnography. It is another international array, from those undertaking research in Scotland to those working in China, Columbia, Jordan and elsewhere.

Spaces are limited so please email  fiona.morrison@ed.ac.uk  by the 20th February with any particular requirements or dietary needs to confirm your place.

What participants said last year about what they learnt:

“The nitty-gritty of the research process. Practical tips and candid responses and reflections have really inspired my research interests.”

“Many ideas for creatively and genuinely seeking children’s perspectives and involving them in research. Many wonderful ideas for resources which can be used. An understanding of the ways in which research with children and young people can influence policy and practice.”

“Ideas about how to listen to children creatively and how to integrate what you have heard into campaigning for policy change (brilliant and really helpful session).”
