Über das Buch

Proceedings of the Annual Conference of Collegium Carolinum, Fischbachau, 7–10 November 2019

Edited by Frank Henschel, Jan Randák, Martina Winkler, and Gabriela Dudeková Kováčová

Childhood is receiving increasing attention in historical research. So far, the Bohemian lands and Slovakia have not been a major focus in this field. While childhoods there were certainly not fundamentally different from those in Western Europe, it can be assumed that the many historic transformations and the diverse social, political, and cultural tensions within these countries produced experiences and ideas of childhood specific to these regions. The contributions to this volume examine aspects of childhood in different periods of Bohemian and Slovak history, starting from diverse perspectives and taking different approaches, and thus aim to stimulate further research.
