Home. School. Nature. The spaces identified with childhood are both descriptive and prescriptive. They reflect/reveal adult expectations of where children 'belong'. The spaces we occupy are a key influence on character development, particularly in childhood.
Proposals of 250-300 words are sought for a collection of articles exploring the relationship between space and identity in children's literature. What is the nature of that relationship? What happens to the spaces associated with childhood over time? How do children conceptualize their own spaces? Space may be conceptualized as physical, imaginative, emotional, psychological, etc.
Papers addressing 20th/21st Century texts are preferred but all submissions will be considered.
Scandinavian cinema culture and archival practices: collecting, curating and accessing moving image histories.
Archives are not storehouses of neutral material, but play a crucial role in the construction of 'historical sources', of documents through selection, classification and categorization, for instance through metadata. An agent in its own right, the archive entails a performative dimension in constructing documents and sources and, as a consequence, in creating the grounds from which history is written.
The editors of Report from the Inside: Essays on Teaching Poetry Behind Bars would like to invite submissions of essays and instructional manuals that offer insights on teaching poetry workshops with incarcerated individuals (either nationally or internationally).

The protests against racial profiling and racist police brutality in the U.S. and Britain, Donald Trump's alarming comments about Muslims, the Confederate flag controversy in South Carolina, the all-white Academy Award nominations, the organization "Operation Black Vote" feeling compelled to urge people of color not to leave the political field to white people in the wake of the UK General Elections, the reactions of the European Union to the masses of refugees and many Europeans' xenophobic reactions to those seeking refuge: the specters of whiteness are still urgently haunting the western world.
