Overview

About the Childhood Research Forum (CRF)

“Childhood is the world of miracle and wonder; as if creation rose, bathed in the light, out of the darkness, utterly new and fresh and astonishing’’  Eugène Ionesco

 

Welcome


‌The Childhood Research Forum (CRF) lies under the Childhood Department in the Faculty of Education at Liverpool Hope University.

CRF was launched in May 2014 and specialises in Childhood research by considering significant implications for theory, pedagogy and practice at a local, national and international level.

We would like to welcome you to our Forum and to invite you to join us and follow our activities.

Dr Zoi Nikiforidou,

Lead of CRF

 

Aims and Objectives   

The main aim of the Childhood Research Forum (CRF) is to contribute to the academic field of childhood studies through a research-led approach.

The Forum is led by scholars from a wide range of research backgrounds, who share interests of diverse aspects of childhood addressing policy, practice and pedagogy. Through an interdisciplinary approach, CRF includes research with children as participants and also with adults who are involved with children and families.

Overall CRF targets to provide a research-based collaborative environment for students, academics, local/national authorities and broader networks to foster further exploration and investigation of diverse aspects within the field of Childhood Studies.
