In recent years, Victorian scholars have given renewed attention to the periodical press and extra-literary modes of communication. Thanks to technological improvements in printing and circulation, the Victorian era saw a significant expansion in the quantity of periodicals and newspapers available to a growing and multifaceted public. As a result, Victorians like Matthew Arnold were anxious about the effect of the new periodical press on the amorphous public and a weakening of state and social authority and coherence, both domestically and abroad. Of course, newspapers could (and did) support state authority as well as oppose it. So how did the press mold readers' opinions and actions in the guise of delivering information?

Children's Literature Panel (PAMLA Conference, San Diego, CA, November 1-3, 2013)

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

The academic interest in children's literature has been growing in popularity. Why do these stories interest a young audience as well as adults? Why are new versions of old stories still interesting? Is the story itself compelling, or are readers fascinated with the aspect of the child itself? This session will focus on children's literature as well as literature about children. Papers can range from any time period and genre (young adult, picture book, folk, film, etc.) Submit a proposal of 300-500 words explaining your project pertaining to the realm of children's literature.

Topics prospective panelists may wish to address include, but are not limited to the following:

We are pleased to accept papers on the theme of "Deathless Love," ranging from the story of Heloise and Abelard to Wuthering Heights and the Twilight series, and dealing with any genre. Of particular interest are interdisciplinary papers making connections between two or more genres, for example, literary or historical love affairs immortalized in visual art and music; the historical and literary intersections of Spiritualism; and cross-cultural notions of love beyond death.
