Childhood in the Past is the bi-annual journal produced by the Society. It provides an important forum for the publication of papers that deal with all aspects of children and childhood in the past.
The focus of the journal is children, childhood and all aspects of the representation of children in the past, and a great variety of source materials; historical, archaeological, anthropological, literary, etc, are used. The Journal fills an important gap in recognising that the study of childhood in the past is a cross-disciplinary venture, requiring communication of ideas across normal academic and chronological boundaries.
Papers from all disciplines relating to the study of childhood in the past – archaeological, anthropological, medical, historical, psychological etc, are included in the Journal.
Should you wish to submit an article to the journal, please contact the journal Editor.
Annual SSCIP membership includes paper copies of new volumes of Childhood in the Past and access to the back catalogue online.
The Journal is peer reviewed and available at: https://www.tandfonline.com/loi/ycip20
