[DEADLINE APPROACHING] CFP: Toy Stories: The Toy as Hero

updated: 
Monday, March 23, 2015 - 11:44pm
Tanya Jones, M.Ed & Chris Stoneley

Abstracts are being welcomed for a proposed collection examining the toy as hero. Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.
