Children’s Literature: An Edwardian Centennial: Children’s Literature
in 1908
1908 marked a watershed year for children’s literature, with the
publication of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, Kenneth
Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows, L. Frank Baum’s Dorothy and The Wizard
of Oz, and Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck. The year
also saw the rise of the scouting movement, heralded by the publication
of Scouting for Boys by Sir Robert Baden-Powell. Papers are invited for
this M/MLA Children's Literature Panel that focus on any aspect of
children’s literature and culture in 1908. Please send a 250-word
abstract and a paragraph biographical sketch (as a word attachment) by
March 15, 2008 to Gwen Tarbox at The 50th Annual
M/MLA Conference will take place from November 13-16, 2008 at the
Minneapolis Marriott City Center.
