We invite marketing, advertising, business, social science, and humanities scholars from all backgrounds to join with our hosts from Carleton University at the Westin Hotel, Ottawa for a friendly, collegial, and interdisciplinary research conference. We call on scholars from around the globe to cast a critical look on all aspects of the history of marketing. In 2019 we particularly, but not exclusively, invite papers exploring how marketing has contributed to the construction of identities.
Citizenship is a phenomenon that encompasses the relationships between the state and individuals, rights and responsibilities and identity and nationhood. Yet the relationship between citizenship and childhood has gone relatively unexplored. This book examines this relationship by situating it within the historical development of modern forms of citizenship that have formed contemporary Western notions of childhood and citizenship.
