An Anthology Concerning Film and Television Depictions of
Children on the American Frontier
New Deadline: August 1, 2003

This collection of essays will address issues related to images of children
on the American frontier and the role of television and film in creating,
chronicling, and sustaining those images. Potential paper topics include,
but are not limited to, child labor on farms, children in mining
communities, education, family travel in the west (the Oregon trail, etc.),
Little House on the Prairie, and orphans on the frontier. Because the
American frontier was and is diverse in its values, lifestyles, and people
groups, works addressing this diversity are encouraged. Additionally, essays
may focus on a variety of genres and time periods. Send completed papers (25
pages maximum, double spaced) to Lynnea Chapman King, 4020 Dogwood,
Loveland, CO 80538. Inquiries may be directed to Lynnea Chapman King,
lynneaking_at_hotmail.com or Dawn Marano, dmarano_at_upress.utah.edu.
