A Game That Calls Up Love and Hatred Both

An International Interdisciplinary Symposium proudly presented by the Australian Centre for Child and Youth: Culture and Wellbeing (ACCY) and Dromkeen National Centre for Picture Book Art.

The Australian Symposium is the first of a series of three international conferences. Its particular focus is to explore the impact of the First World War on childhood from the perspective of the global south. In doing so, it will bring together researchers and practitioners to explore verbal and visual representations of war in the children’s culture of Australia and the global south, with special reference to the First World War but also considering other wars of the 20th century.

Papers from a variety of disciplines, including English, Education, Film, History, Modern Languages, Sociology, and Geography will be presented.
