Own and Other Voices: The 1st Biennial kidlit@hollins Symposium

updated: 
Monday, December 16, 2019 - 10:13am
Hollins University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 14, 2020

American and English diasporic children’s literature plays a fundamental role in unconsciously reproducing the category of Self as white and male, and the rest of humankind as “Other.” Recent attempts to shift consciousness away from this include the hashtag #ownvoices coined on Twitter in 2015 by Corinne Duyvis, to use, she explains, “for whatever marginalized/diverse identity you want…and for whatever genre, category or form of art you want. As long as the protagonist and the author share a marginalized identity.” Of course, one marginalized identity no adult can share is that of a child. Still, we speak for children from their narrative viewpoints.
