ChLA Panels at MLA 2021

ChLA is sponsoring three sessions at MLA 2021 in Toronto, Canada, January 7-10; all three sessions are currently inviting abstract submissions. “Questioning the Canon: Rethinking the Golden Age of Children’s Literature” invites submissions that interrogate and seek alternatives to canonical Golden Age children’s literature, asking how non-canonical Golden Age works and/or contemporary revisions amplify marginalized voices. “The Ethical Turn in Children’s Literature and Childhood Studies,” reflects on the shift in the field away from critique and toward ethical questions and stakes for real children. “The Other in Narratives of Rival Nations” seeks papers that examine the representation of the ethnic Other in literatures of rival nations or ethnic groups in twentieth and twenty-first century children’s and young adult fiction from around the world.

All abstract submissions are due by March 1, 2020. For more information on each session, including contact information and abstract length, please see the three calls for papers posted on the ChLA website.
