MMLA - St. Louis 2016

In the spirit of MMLA's conference theme of "Border States," this roundtable seeks to explore new pedagogical approaches to the teaching of world literature to college undergraduates, especially those in survey courses, though others will be considered. We are particularly interested in papers that explore how we introduce students to "world literature" in new and innovative ways, models that move from traditional surveys to the borders of world literature, and ways in which world literature, broadly speaking, can be effectively included in the curricula.

Home. School. Nature. The spaces identified with childhood are both descriptive and prescriptive. They reflect/reveal adult expectations of where children 'belong'. The spaces we occupy are a key influence on character development, particularly in childhood.

Proposals of 250-300 words are sought for a collection of articles exploring the relationship between space and identity in children's literature. What is the nature of that relationship? What happens to the spaces associated with childhood over time? How do children conceptualize their own spaces? Space may be conceptualized as physical, imaginative, emotional, psychological, etc.
Papers addressing 20th/21st Century texts are preferred but all submissions will be considered.
