Childhood is a crucial stage in the formation of personality, value orientations, self-image and ideas about the world. However, the subject of childhood has become the target of research relatively recently. A wide range of problems and an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon have extended the boundaries of the academic and professional research interests. Nowadays, the study of children and childhood is an integral part of the humanities and social sciences. We invite psychologists, educators, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary scholars, historians, art experts, lawyers, linguists and specialists in other fields to participate in the conference.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Childhood Psychology 
Anthropology of Children and Childhood
