Juvenile Delinquency in the 19th and 20th Centuries: East-West Comparisons
Sponsored by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung, The Centre for British Studies (Großbritannien-Zentrum) will host a two-day conference on the history of juvenile delinquency in the 19th and 20th Centuries. In particular, discussion will focus on comparisons between the construction and understanding of juvenile delinquency in the cultural fields of East and West. Bringing together scholars working in a variety of fields including history, sociology, ethnography and literary studies, we hope to reach a more nuanced understanding of the ways in which concepts of childhood, youth and delinquency have been shaped by particular cultural contexts.
