Editors of a special issue of the journal Children & Society seek papers for a special issue: "Children's and Teenagers' Food Practices in Contexts of Poverty and Inequality."

From the call for papers:

Qualitative studies of children's perspectives of poverty show the damaging effects on them of material disadvantage and social exclusion, as well as the ways that resourceful and resilient young people manage and moderate the effects of poverty (Ridge, 2011). However, not enough is known in the contemporary context of austerity, nor at an international level, about how children and young people negotiate food and eating in contexts of enduring disadvantage. This special issue of Children & Society (2018) will address this gap in knowledge.

Abstracts are due Sept. 30, 2016; the deadline for full papers will be in February 2017. For more information, see the full call for papers.
