Canadian Children's Literature / Littérature canadienne pour la jeunesse,

Design/Designing for Children. We welcome papers that examine the
design of children's books and posters, toys and games, television and
videos, theatre and performances, newspapers and magazines,
museums and libraries, parks and playworlds. We hope to highlight the
designer's crucial role in conceiving of and shaping our ideas about what
we think expresses a child's imagination, meets a child's needs, and
defines what is special about their province and perspective. Some of the
questions we hope to address are as follows:

CFP: Preschool Culture: Theory and Practice (no deadline; journal issue)

Saturday, February 16, 2002 - 4:26pm
Benjamin Lefebvre

Perhaps more than other children's literature and film, preschool books
and television programs tend to be rooted in teaching the very young
something or other -- letters, numbers, colours, music, sports, values.

What is not clear is just what sort of research on cognitive and emotional
development supports these pedagogic efforts.

Are some books and television shows better than others at promoting
development and acuity in small children, and, if so, why?

What does research in developmental and behavioural paediatrics and in
social learning tell us about optimizng infant development, about the role
of observational learning, about how to promote moral reasoning and
language development?

Call for Abstracts

Essay Collection Geomodernisms: 'Race,' Modernism, Modernity

one phenomenon of an uneven modernity, that is, a modernism emerging at
different times and places within such contradictory forces as technology,
diaspora, global capitalism, nationalism, and poly-lingualism. We are
especially seeking essays that probe the interlocking of cultural
aesthetics and geo-politics, taking into consideration the local and global
dimensions of a particular modernism.
