CFP: Children and Political Activism

2007 MLA in Chicago

Inspired by Susan Bartoletti's Kids on Strike and Growing up in Coal Country
and novels such as Carl Hiaasen's Hoot and Flush, we are seeking critical
examinations of texts written for children (fictional, non-fictional,
photographic, etc.) depicting children as activists and/or texts that are
designed to inspire child readers to take up direct political action. These
texts might include representations of radical children demanding their
rights or fighting for particular causes or instigating political change.

Extended Abstract Deadline: 15 March 2007
Send 1-2 page abstracts or 8-page papers to:

Dr. Jennifer Miskec
Christopher Newport University


Dr. Chris McGee
Longwood University

              From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
