CfP: Essays on Mildred Taylor (Edited Collection)

Editors: Tammy L. Mielke, Sarah Hardstaff and Michelle H. Martin

Since the publication of Song of the Trees in 1975, Mildred D. Taylor’s award-winning Logan family novels have presented complex representations of black characters, family, community, cultural and political life that defy the often stereotypical representations found in children’s literature at large. Yet there has been considerably less critical engagement with Taylor’s work than might be expected. For this anthology we are seeking contributions that examine numerous aspects of Taylor’s work and its wider impact.

This anthology is under advanced contract with University Press of Mississippi.

“Not Just Amongst the Gothic: Doubles, Duality, and Doppelgangers in Children’s and Young Adult Literature”

updated: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 9:38am
Children's and Young Adult Literature and Culture Permanent Session/Midwest Modern Language Association Chicago, IL November 14-17, 2019.
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 5, 2019

Doubles, duality, and doppelgangers are concepts found and addressed throughout Children’s and Young Adult Literature. While twins, such as those found in the Sweet Valley Highor The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamelseries, may overtly speak to doubling, other considerations, such as the “double-voiced discourse” of young adult literature Mike Cadden explores in “The Irony of Narration in Young Adult Literature,” also speaks to the wide treatment doubles and doubling have received by scholars, critics, and authors of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. Children’s and Young Adult Literature are of wide interest to audiences of children, young adults, and adults alike.
