CFP: SHCY Featured Students

SHCY Featured Students

The Society for the History of Children and Youth is introducing a “Featured Student” online series with a revitalized website Fall 2018. We are creating a space for doctoral students to share what has inspired and challenged them during their dissertation projects.

Interested applicants should submit the following for review by July 1, 2018. Featured students will appear on SHCY’s website throughout the 2018-19 academic year. Please include in your submission to shcyhome@gmail.com

E-mail address
Short C.V.
100-200 word bio statement
Hi-Res Headshot
A 750-1000 reflection or commentary on your dissertation project
Optional:
Brief (under 10-minute) audio or video clip discussing your work with a colleague.
Additional visual material as appropriate.
Large files will require google-drive or drop-box exchange.
In your text, audio, or video submission, consider addressing:

What do you want your peers and other academics to know about your work?

What inspires your research? (ideas, theories, great works, pressing issues, persistent problems, hopes and aspirations).

What questions are you asking and how are you trying to answer them?

Why do you think that this research is important?

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail shcyhome@gmail.com, or directly to Carla Joubert – SHCY Digital Fellow – cjoubert@uwo.ca.
