Last Minute Search fo Co-Panelist for UK Children’s History Society (Deadline Nov. 1)

Karen Balcom posted the following call for panelists on H-Childhood:

Hello –

I am making a last minute effort to form a panel for the Children’s History Society conference at the University of Greenwich in June 2018. Theme of the Conference is Children and Youth on the Move. My paper would be on Greek adolescents and young adults in the 1950s who were relinquished for adoption by their parents in Greece, and then adopted by Aunts and Uncles in the US as a way to facilitate migration to the US. I’m looking for other schoalrs treating adoption as migration, or exploring other modes of child migration esp. in the immediate aftermath of WWII.

The call for papers is at: https://histchild2018.wordpress.com/2017/07/02/call-for-papers/ Deadline is Nov. 1st.

Contact me: balcomk@mcmaster.ca

Thanks! Karen
