Friday 18 March 2011, Geffrye Museum, London 9.30-17.30pm

 While childhood itself has been the subject of scholarly interest, relatively little has been written on the place of children within the home, their position within the household and their lived experience of home. This conference will therefore bring together historical and contemporary research examining children’s senses of home and belonging, their familial/ household relationships and their use of space within the home, as well as their material culture.

 Sessions will explore the intimate spaces and memories of working- and middle-class childhoods, toys and technology in the contemporary home, homelessness and deprived childhoods, as well as feeling at home in semi-domestic settings and institutions. Methodological challenges and innovations will also be discussed throughout the day. The conference programme reflects the interdisciplinary approach of the Histories of Home SSN and will draw on sociology, social and economic history, film studies, cultural anthropology, pedagogy, art history and social work.
