The Nursery Door Opened: Re-imagining Childhood
(SEASECS 2010)

This panel invites papers that explore children's texts as a vehicle for the re-conceptualization of the child and childhood during the long Eighteenth Century. In addition to papers that consider specific children's books, we would also encourage those that examine illustrations, toys, and/or games for children. Please submit 250-300 word abstracts by October 8, 2009, to Phyllis Thompson at .

East Tennessee State University (Johnson City, TN) will host the 36th Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (SEASECS) regional conference on February 18-20, 2010, at the Carnegie Hotel and Spa. For more information about the conference, please visit our website at .
