CFP: Children and Political Activism

Inspired by the work of Susan Bartoletti's Kids on Strike and Growing up in
Coal Country, this panel seeks submissions examining children's texts
(fictional, non-fictional, photographic, etc.) depicting children taking
political action and/or texts that are designed to inspire child readers to
take up direct political action.

These texts, marketed to children, might include representations of radical
children demanding their rights or fighting for particular causes.
