"Margin" is clearly not a stable term when talking about Australia, and gives rise to questions such as who is on the margin of whom or what? Is the margin mainly territorial or conceptual? Are those on the margin there by choice or not? How has the definition of the margin changed over the years and how is it likely to change again in the future?

All children face conflict at some time in their lives and this conference explores the way in which this is represented in children's and young adult fiction.

Writers of children's and young adult fiction have never shied away from writing about conflict faced by children whether it's the conflict of a world war in The Silver Sword (1956) or inter-tribal conflict in East Africa in Little Soldier (1999) – both explored at last year's exhibition, 'Once Upon a Wartime', at the Imperial War Museum – generational conflict such as that experienced by Mossy Trotter (1967) or intra-racial conflict faced by the eponymous Rani and Sukh in Bali Rai's book (2004).

This conference is part of a larger research project, focusing on societies, exchanges and power in the Americas and the Asia / Pacific region, as well as questions of identity representation on an international scale. More precisely, it might be useful to re-think the very notion of culture by examining the experiences / situations and the representations of those who chose – or were forced – to change cultures. The primary goal is to study a cultural displacement within the geographical confines of the Americas / Asia Pacific region, in which the CRHIA (Research center, international and Atlantic history) specializes.
