Call for Papers and Registration now open


We have an exciting programme over three full days and are pleased to confirm our three keynote speakers as:

  •  Professor Mary C. Brinton of Harvard University
  •  Professor Tim Newburn of the London School of Economics
  •  Professor Guy Standing of the University of Bath

 There are also three roundtable debates on key issues and a set of themed and open paper sessions.

 At this stage we are inviting proposals for themed sessions as well as abstracts for proposed papers. Proposals for themed sessions should be no longer than one page and should set out the scope and rationale for the session. Themed sessions will be 90 minutes long, although we are open to proposals for several linked themed sessions in a major area. Paper abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and may either be directed towards a themed session or placed in an open stream. All contributions will be refereed.

 At the moment we are not setting a closing date at this stage, but first elections will be made in October 2012, final deadline 1st December 2012. All proposals should be sent to the dedicated conference email address: youthstudiesconference@gmail.com
