CFP: How Normal is White?: The Normalization of Whiteness in Children's and YA Lit

M. Green-Barteet & M. Gilbert-Hickey/Children's Literature Association

In recent years, critics, teachers, editors, authors, and readers have all argued that children's and Young Adult literature must be more diverse. In fact, there are numerous blogs and websites, including "We Need Diverse Books," "Diversity in YA," "Latin@s in Kid Lit," "Rich in Color," and "I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the Hell Do I Read?," among others, devoted to promoting diversity in children's and YA lit. As such blogs and websites along with numerous surveys show, there is a dearth of diverse characters and diverse writers in children's and YA lit. This dearth promotes, whether intentionally or not, the idea that whiteness is normal and that the unearned privilege that comes with being white is also normal.
