Workshop: Children, media and communication: new histories of experience

This workshop looks to bring together discussions that centre children and young people’s encounters with media and communication practices as a route to developing conceptual and methodological approaches to doing the history of children and youth’s experience. Building on recent scholarship on child-produced media that explores the agency of children as cultural producers and facilitators of social networks, we seek to extend conversations about what children’s creation and inhabitation of media sites meant to them and to society in different historical contexts.

The workshop will take place at Tampere University, Finland, and it will be streamed online. It consists of sessions of individual papers and a keynote talk delivered by Dr. Stephanie Olsen. Detailed programme can be found in the event’s web page.

The sessions are held on Monday April 24 (in room A32) and on Tuesday 25 (in room D13) between 10:00-17:00, time zone in Finland is UTC + 3. Registration can be completed via this link by 16 April 2023: https://www.lyyti.fi/reg/children_media_and_communication_2023
