[T]he principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes—the legal subordination of one sex to the other—is wrong in itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement; [...] it ought to be replaced by a principle of perfect equality, admitting no power or privilege on the one side, nor disability on the other.

J.S. Mill, The Subjection of Women (1869), ch. 1§1

“Not Just Amongst the Gothic: Doubles, Duality, and Doppelgangers in Children’s and Young Adult Literature”

updated: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 9:38am

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 5, 2019

Doubles, duality, and doppelgangers are concepts found and addressed throughout Children’s and Young Adult Literature. While twins, such as those found in the Sweet Valley Highor The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamelseries, may overtly speak to doubling, other considerations, such as the “double-voiced discourse” of young adult literature Mike Cadden explores in “The Irony of Narration in Young Adult Literature,” also speaks to the wide treatment doubles and doubling have received by scholars, critics, and authors of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. Children’s and Young Adult Literature are of wide interest to audiences of children, young adults, and adults alike.

Dr. Joshua King/ Baylor University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2019

This flightless, multi-site conference (Sept. 18-21, 2019) invites interdisciplinary attention to confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). Since that century, anthropogenic climate change has rapidly accelerated, and in response to this legacy we will avoid air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, this method of networking, by lowering barriers of cost and transportation, promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.
