To Whom Nothing is Given, Much is Required: Generational Obligation in Children’s Literature

This panel looks for papers exploring the debt owed by children to their community and by the community to its children. Suggested topics include expectations of success and breaking free from the cycle of poverty, sibling obligation, and obligations of mutual care for children and parents. Papers exploring monetary obligations between generations are also welcome.

Please submit 300 word abstracts by June 4th to Niall Nance-Carroll, Illinois State University, ncnance@ilstu.edu. Please include the abstract in the body of the message rather than as an attachment.

Chair: Niall Nance-Carroll, Illinois State University, ncnance@ilstu.edu
