The Conference on Human Development

Human Development Fordham University April 9-11, 2010

The Conference on Human Development celebrated its 21th biennial meeting in 2010.

The Conference on Human Development was originally started by Hayne W. Reese and a small group of developmental researchers located primarily in the Southeast region of the United States as a regional “off-year” meeting of scholars interested in gathering together to share their work. This year we ask you to join us in New York City!

The Conference on Human Development provides a warm and inviting opportunity for lively interchange among scholars, students, practitioners, child advocates, policy makers, and others interested in human development, broadly defined. The conference invites contributions from multiple disciplines (psychology, education, human development and family studies, counseling, social work, child welfare, cognitive science, neuroscience, anthropology, and others), relating to multiple domains of typical and atypical human development (cognitive, social, emotional, biological, language, motor), within multiple contexts for development (cultural, school, family, genetic/biological, economic, clinical, neighborhood), and pertaining to multiple periods of development (prenatal, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, life-span).

Fordham University, the Jesuit University of New York, is committed to the discovery of Wisdom and the transmission of Learning, through research and through undergraduate, graduate and professional education of the highest quality. Guided by its Catholic and Jesuit traditions, Fordham fosters the intellectual, moral and religious development of its students and prepares them for leadership in a global society.
