Children's Film and Literature: A One-Day Conference.
Hosted by the Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University, Leicester.
Monday March 1st, 2010.

In March 2010, the Centre for Adaptations will be running a one day event bringing together a range of scholars interested in the relationship between children, film and literature across the twentieth century.

We are particularly interested in papers which explore:

• Screen adaptations of children's literature.
• Children's film as a distinct commercial or critical category.
• The status of child readers and viewers.
• The image of the child in film and literature.

Papers will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of Adaptation (Oxford University Press) devoted to children's literature and film, which we are planning for 2011.

Proposals (of approximately 300 words) should be sent to: by 11 December, 2009
