Child Development announces a call for papers for the special section Origins of Children’s Self-Views, with guest editors Eddie Brummelman (University of Amsterdam) and Sander Thomaes (University of Southampton, Utrecht University). The special section aims to answer questions such as when and why do self-views first emerge? How do social experiences shape children’s self-views? What experiences underlie the normative and non-normative trajectories by which children’s self-views develop? And how can children’s self-views be altered through targeted intervention?
For an upcoming issue, Creative Nonfiction is seeking new essays that explore the joys and struggles, the indignities and infinite possibilities of childhood. Maybe you lived Where the Wild Things Are or during The Wonder Years; maybe you’re a parent or a pediatrician or a marketer of breakfast cereals, witnessing young people discover themselves and the world. Whatever your perspective, we’re looking for well-crafted true stories that examine kid-dom in all its messy, exhilarating, turbulent glory.
This interdisciplinary book draws on important work in psychology and sociology and was just published by Cambridge University Press.
