Everyone Poops: Children's Literature and the Bathroom

This panel seeks scholarship on the various uses of bathroom imagery in
Children's and Adolescent Literature. Whether it involves action that
takes place within the bathroom setting or bathroom humor that takes
place outside, we seek submissions that examine a wide range of topics
such as ribald humor on bodily functions, discussions of bodily science,
the dangers of the bathroom/locker room, or simply toilet training
manuals. Any critical/theoretical approach is welcome.

Please email one-page abstracts or eight-page papers or any questions to
Jennifer M. Miskec at

 From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
