One of the most original contributions of the so-called new childhood studies is the shift away from earlier notions of a “universal child” (marked by biological as much as cultural and psychological universals, cutting across all cultural and social groups) to the idea of childhood as a social construct, contingent on historically and culturally situated realities. Starting in the 1980s, researchers have increasingly placed emphasis on children as “agents” and “beings” in their own right, whereas before childhood was conceptualized as a social structure and a state of becoming toward fully realized human adults (James and Prout 1990).

Can a liberal education make you a better discerner of truth?

It seems as if we're awash in information. From the moment we wake until we turn off our phones at night, we are bombarded with images, messages, news and information from a confounding number of sources. The entirety of the world's collected facts, seemingly left unadulterated only for us to interpret and justify, never feels more than a few taps away.

Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War and 80 years since the publication of Three Guineas, the 28th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf invites papers addressing the dual theme of Europe and Peace. From the ‘prying’, ‘insidious’ ‘fingers of the European War’ that Septimus Warren Smith would never be free of in Mrs Dalloway to Woolf’s call to ‘think peace into existence’ during the Blitz in ‘Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid’, questions of war and peace pervade her writings.
