This international conference is part of the MuséaLitté research programme on the interaction between museums and literature.

It will be hosted by the Musée d'art et d'histoire Paul Eluard (Saint-Denis) and la Maison des sciences de l'homme (Saint-Denis) on 7-8 November 2019.

Museums are both highly symbolic spaces and sites for the construction and dissemination of culture. Writers visit, appropriate, and mediatise all kinds of museums (Public or private, natural history museums, ethnographic collections, science and technology museums, art galleries, cabinets of curiosities, world expositions) as well as places where literature is preserved and classified (libraries, literary archives, and manuscript centres).

The child occupies a fraught space in American culture, as notions of the “rebellious adolescent” and the “infant nation” have long tethered political upheaval to the figure of the child. This panel seeks to examine child figures who have performed disruption in the literature of America with particular interest in disruption that confronts notions of authority, ownership, and belonging.

NeMLA 51st Annual Convention, March 5-8, 2020

Boston, Massachusetts

 

The collection Children’s Geographies explores children's places from playgrounds, social networks, schools, streets, villages, and so much more. Peter Hunt’s “Unstable Metaphors: Symbolic Spaces and Specific Places” differentiates between the internal/personal of the “space” and the external/reality of the “place.” Drawing on these ideas, this panel seeks to continue the discussion of children’s places and spaces by asking how children exist in the real world and the fictional world, in addition to how their literature serves (or doesn’t serve) as a distinct space of its own.

“My fingers tingle to grasp a pen—my brain teems with plots. I've a score of fascinating dream characters I want to write about. Oh, if there only were not such a chasm between seeing a thing and getting it down on paper!” –Emily Climbs (1925)

“If for Montgomery Nature was eternal and eternally present, then the memory pictures of Nature reflected were perhaps meant to help her and her viewers to transcend time and, in entering the imaginative landscape, initiate generative seeing and fresh reverie.”
