Doubles, duality, and doppelgangers are concepts found and addressed throughout Children’s and Young Adult Literature. While twins, such as those found in the Sweet Valley Highor The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamelseries, may overtly speak to doubling, other considerations, such as the “double-voiced discourse” of young adult literature Mike Cadden explores in “The Irony of Narration in Young Adult Literature,” also speaks to the wide treatment doubles and doubling have received by scholars, critics, and authors of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. Children’s and Young Adult Literature are of wide interest to audiences of children, young adults, and adults alike.
The 76th annual South Central Modern Language Association convention will be held in Little Rock, Arkansas from October 24-26 at the Little Rock Marriott, near the Clinton Library and the headquarters of Heifer International. It is the perfect city for this year’s theme, “Pathways: Past, Present and Future.” The theme takes its cue from Arkansas’s natural beauty, rich history, and diverse culture.

Girls, Girls, Girls!: Defining and Deconstructing ‘Domestic Noir’
Deadline for Submission: 1 May 2019
Contact email: domesticnoirTCD@gmail.com
A free-of-charge one-day symposium on domestic noir fiction, hosted by the School of English at Trinity College Dublin in association with the Trinity Long Room Hub, on Friday 23 August 2019.
This flightless, multi-site conference (Sept. 18-21, 2019) invites interdisciplinary attention to confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). Since that century, anthropogenic climate change has rapidly accelerated, and in response to this legacy we will avoid air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, this method of networking, by lowering barriers of cost and transportation, promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.
