Children's film and literature: a 1-day conference 1/03/10
Children's Film and Literature: A One-Day Conference.
Hosted by the Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University, Leicester.
Monday March 1st, 2010.
In March 2010, the Centre for Adaptations will be running a one day event bringing together a range of scholars interested in the relationship between children, film and literature across the twentieth century.
We are particularly interested in papers which explore:
• Screen adaptations of children's literature.
• Children's film as a distinct commercial or critical category.
• The status of child readers and viewers.
• The image of the child in film and literature.
Papers will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of Adaptation (Oxford University Press) devoted to children's literature and film, which we are planning for 2011.
Proposals (of approximately 300 words) should be sent to:
