The 2012 autumn conference of the Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past took place at the University of Granada, Spain from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st of October. This year the theme was "Children and their living spaces. Sharing spaces, sharing experiences". As in previous occasions, the conference included sessions addressing the conference theme and other aspects of recent research into children and childhood in the past.

In 2012, the themed sessions aimed to bring together scholars from a wide range ofacademic disciplines including History, Archaeology, Literature, Sociology, Anthropology and Architecture to consider different aspects of children and the use of space in the past:

  • children’s use of space within the home, rules and negotiating processes;
  • places used solely by children; places for learning and/or playing;
  • how children construct their own spaces and how they share the spaces withother adults;
  • children and the funerary spaces;
  • children and their workplaces and conditions;
  • how children´ spaces can be visible in archaeological records, texts or architecture;
  • children´s places at museum
