5. CFP: SCIENCE FOR CHILDREN: EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE (LISBON)
Science for Children: CALL FOR PAPERS for a session at the ESHS
Conference, Lisbon, 4-6 September 2014.

Science for children has often been enmeshed with moral, religious and
social agendas in more or less obvious ways. In this sense, understanding
the way science has been communicated to the youngest can offer insights
into how science has been used for shaping tomorrow’s citizens. Did these
campaigns really contribute to strengthening the technological foundations
of modern societies? What do we actually know about the means, the actors,
the strategies, the contexts, and the outcomes surrounding science
communication targeted at a pre-teenage audience in various places and at
various times? While research on popular science has made significant
progress in the last decades, science for children is a topic that is, with
few exceptions, largely understudied. This session intends to bundle the
existing approaches and bringing people with various backgrounds together
to discuss “science for children” from a historical perspective.

Participants are invited to address issues such as:
– Sources: Books, juvenile encyclopedias, comics, serials, sticker
collections, newspapers, science toys and games, television programs and
films for children. Science topics covered. Ways of representing science.
Popular science books for children versus popular science books for
adults.
– Reception: Children as an audience: children´s reception of popular
science books in public libraries. Children´s reception of television
science shows. Preferred topics.
– Actors: Children as authors. Ways of representing science. Editors and
educators. Parents and politicians.
– Institutions: Science education for children (curricula, text books).
Science clubs, science fairs and science museums for children.
– Strategies: Popular science books versus school science textbooks for
children. Opening minds to new ideas versus framing minds for learning?
Iconography, literary styles, rhetorical devices and types of discourse
used in science texts for children.
– Ideologies: Influence of political, religious, moral and social codes
on the way science is communicated to children.
– International circulation and local appropriation.
This call is open for other tantalizing questions. Please, feel free to
make your contribution.

Deadline for submission of paper proposals: 1 January 2014
Please send me an abstract in English (maximum 400-words, including title,
name(s) & affiliation(s) of the author(s)) (isabel.zilhao@gmail.com).
