After the recent successful conference in Copenhagen a few of us thought it would be a good idea to find out a little more about who is applying Norbert Elias’s perspective to childhood. We are hoping that we could all get together to present papers in this area and related themes (education) at conferences on Elias and international conferences in sociology. In the longer term we also hope to conduct some much needed comparative research on the way that different forms of habitus influence institutional child-care arrangements.
