CFP: Romanticism and the Child as Liberator (11/17/06; NASSR (UK)7/26/07)

This proposed session of the 2007 combined NASSR/BARS Conference at the University of Bristol invites a study of the child in Romantic literature as a liberator or symbol of liberty. How has the child been represented as one to liberate adults, the oppressed, the Other? How has the child been symbolized in this way differently by male and female writers? The theme of the conference is "Emancipation, Liberation, Freedom." Send 300-word abstracts by e-mail to Lisbeth Chapin (Gwynedd-Mercy College) at: by November 17, 2006.

Thank you,
