Children’s literature as a field is not bounded by geography, and so critical discussions of the children’s literary tradition outside of a US context appear frequently in journals ranging from The New England Reading Association, to The Lion and the Unicorn, and The Reading Teacher. In fact, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly dedicated the Winter 2018 issue to “Migration, Refugees, and Diaspora in Children's Literature.” Despite the abundance of critical work, pedagogical resources such as Evelyn B. Freeman and Barbara A.

Call for book chapters on Marguerite Henry's King of the Wind

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

I invite chapter proposals on Marguerite Henry’s Newbery-winning novel King of the Wind for the first in a series of edited collections about Henry’s individual works, edited by Rachel L. Carazo (Northwestern State University).

All areas of study, with a common goal of representing the cultural, social, philosophical, and material significance of King of the Wind are invited to participate.

While writing my graduate thesis, “Conflicting Views of Culture and Power: The Arab World in Marguerite Henry’s King of the Wind”, Dawn Heinecken also published an article about the absence of scholarship on Henry’s works. These proposed collections therefore seek to increase the scholarship available about Marguerite Henry.

Originally an 18th-century German innovation, the bildungsroman became a popular literary genre across the Anglo-American world during the 19th century. A ‘coming of age’ novel about young adults in search of meaning, the genre was the literary medium of choice for many Western writers exploring the moral and psychological developments of characters traversing unfamiliar worlds and encountering new challenges and adventures.

Evil Children: Children and Evil
2nd Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Sunday 18th April 2021 - Monday 19th April 2021
Vienna, Austria

The idea of the child as innocent, as pure, the ‘little angel’ in need of protection from the harsh realities of life and the corrupting influences of the world around us has come to dominate our thinking, language, values, social policies and educational philosophies. Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

The panel proposes a discussion of the transformations fairy tales undergo when being adapted into new media (for example, Hansel and Gretel as an opera), new cultures (Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid as Hayao Miyazaki’s Ponyo) and new historical or theoretical contexts (Catherine Breillat’s Sleeping Beauty).

updated:

Alexandra Claridge
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

 

Growing up is a perennial feature of human societies. While anxieties surrounding childhood are universal, the manifestations of these concerns vary between cultures. This series of sessions proposes to shed light upon the nexus of ambiguity surrounding the medieval child, as depicted in contemporaneous literature. We invite abstracts for papers that will explore the representation of childhood in texts of any language, genre, and period within the Middle Ages. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

 

 

 

• Historical notions of education, child-rearing, and ʻgood

 

behaviourʼ.

 

• Non-human and/or monstrous children.

 

• Infantilised adults and inescapable childhood.

Children's Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020

The arcade.

Maybe it makes you think of neon flashing lights and cacophonies of strange sounds, or maybe your mind immediately jumps to visions of Pac-Man and Space Invaders. Maybe the word conjures nostalgia for childhood friendships and fun, as seen in Stranger Things. Perhaps your imagination wanders to the pachinko parlors of Tokyo. Or maybe you go to the traditional origins of the word, seeing the covered walkways of seventeenth-century French architecture or the contemporary covered markets of Santiago. Maybe the arcade, for you, remains linked to the theories of Walter Benjamin, prompting reflection on consumption and capitalism.

Eurasian Folk and Fairy Tales: Bridging Continents

Sunday, January 31, 2021

Emerging from oral literature, folk and fairy tales are embedded and entangled within the very confines of human consciousness and are continuously rewoven into the fabric of cultural memory. Often categorised as stories for children, these tales not only provide vital information into the psyche and disposition of the human mind, but also enable us to understand social and cultural interactions. The vast imagery, motifs, and archetypes these tales produce enable them to be constantly re-conceived, reinterpreted, and disseminated. Even though folk and fairy tales emerge from differing cultures with diverse traditions and customs, they seem to share similar formation mechanisms.

Sunday, August 30, 2020

Growing up in Latin America is an experience that has been marked by constant negotiations with precarity, (post)coloniality and multiple forms of violence. Numerous literary and audiovisual productions have drawn attention to this issue, which has also elicited significant academic interest. In this edited volume, we invite critical examinations of 20th and 21stcenturies coming-of-age narratives and Bildungsroman dealing with bi-cultural or multi-cultural identities, picaresque and heterodox processes of learning, non hetero-normative sexualities, as well as other alternative processes of development and growth.
