BIN-Norden is a Nordic research network based on interdisciplinary child culture studies. It was established in the 1970s to promote children’s cultural visibility in society.

Currently BIN-Norden is working on subjects such as play, aesthetics, methodology, intergenerationality and the diversity of new Nordic childhoods by exploring:

  • Children as creators and users of culture
  • Children as social, local and global participants
  • Children’s lives academically, practically and artistically in context


The network provides a platform for exchanging information about current research, upcoming events and interesting publications. It also arranges biannual conferences and runs master courses and projects. The network seeks to develop Nordic and international cooperation while actively promoting the visibility of Nordic research within the area of child culture studies.

The members in the network are mostly researchers, but also practitioners, cultural producers and policy makers.
