CFP: Aging and the Young (3/1/06; MLA 12/27-12/30/06)

Aging and the Young: Representations of Old Age in Young Adult and
Children's Literature

What do storybooks teach children about getting old? How do
children's books and books for young adults construct lifetimes on a
personal and a social level? How do such books contribute to ageism,
age positivism, or a multiplicity of views? How could they do things
differently? How can and do books for pre-adults prepare people to
embrace the challenges of getting older throughout the life
cycle? Papers on all aspects of old age in children's and young
adult literature welcomed.
