Childhood Publics and the Child’s Gaze is a three-part seminar series dedicated to thinking about the various aspects of children’s photography. In each of the three seminars, different speakers address the archival, aesthetic, ethical, legal, and technical challenges and opportunities that children’s photography creates in research and practice. The first seminar recording, ‘gazing at childhood in the public sphere’, features Melissa Benn, author and journalist, Liam Berriman, Senior Lecturer in Childhood and Youth Studies at the University of Sussex, and Ioanna Noula, Research Manager at the Internet Commission and visiting Research Fellow in the Department of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics.
