“All that I’ve never thought of - think of me!”

In commemoration of Randall Jarrell's 100th birthday (May 6, 1914), The Modern Language Association division of Children's Literature is soliciting papers that shed new light on his work. We seek papers that discuss Jarrell as a children’s literature author, a poet, a critic, a novelist and an essayist. We are especially interested in papers on his work as a teacher, his collaborations, translations and influence.

Please send an abstract (400-500 words) and a 2-page CV by Friday, March 8, 2013 to Tali Noimann (cnoimann@bmcc.cuny.edu)
