Picturing Childhood in American Literature and Culture - SAMLA - Nov. 13-15, 2015 - Durham, NC

full name / name of organization: 
Laura Hakala / SAMLA: Graduate Students' Forum in English

In her recent book about the role of childhood studies in the humanities, Anna Mae Duane writes, "The study of children, often seen as peripheral to the important work of understanding social, political, national, and ethnic structures, allows us to rethink the very foundations underlying these structures." This panel will explore how children play central roles in "social, political, national, and ethnic structures" and consider the ways in which literary representations of childhood participate in this process. When we study child characters and fictional depictions of childhood, what new insights are revealed about social and cultural institutions? How have those roles shifted over time throughout American literature and culture?
