SOCEY (Studies of Childhood, Education & Youth) is a community of scholars working in the fields of childhood, education, and youth studies across a variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, particularly sociology and history.
The intent of the website is threefold. It aims to:
- provide a platform to connect those working in the interdisciplinary field of childhood, youth and education studies, encourage discussion about research and ideas, and showcase the projects, programs and people;
- explore debates and possibilities surrounding qualitative research sharing and archiving in the humanities and social sciences, particularly in interdisciplinary studies of childhood, youth and education; and
- develop a qualitative data repository, tailored specifically for studies of childhood, youth and education.
