ChLA Panels at MLA 2021

ChLA is sponsoring three sessions at MLA 2021 in Toronto, Canada, January 7-10:

  • “Questioning the Canon: Rethinking the Golden Age of Children’s Literature” aims to 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” examines 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

Further information about these panels is forthcoming.
