The Australasian Journal of Early Childhood (AJEC) is Australasia’s foremost scholarly journal and the world’s longest-running major journal within the early childhood field. Published quarterly, AJEC offers research-based articles that are designed to impart new information and encourage the critical exchange of ideas among early childhood practitioners, academics and students.

The 2018 AJEC Research Symposium, Politics, power and agency in early childhood education, to be held on 16–17 February 2018 at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, has the objective to encourage childhood practitioners, researchers, academics and students to share innovative research methodologies and findings with cutting-edge partnerships and collaborations, and to strengthen the research networks in Australasia and beyond. The symposium aims to be a platform for the participants to critically reflect on the role that politics, power and agency have in the early childhood education sector.
