Monday, March 22, 2010 - 1:49pm
SAMLA Nov. 5-7, 2010 Atlanta/ submission deadline June 1

Whether they appear in literary works intended for adults or for children, and whether they are "real" or fictional, child characters are almost always the product of adult imaginings. What kinds of "cultural work" do child characters do in literary works? How is gender performed by these characters? How is national identity formed? This panel seeks papers which address these issues or others centered on the representation of children and childhood in American literary texts before 1900.
