CFP Secret Garden: MLA in LA (Jan 2011)

A Century of The Secret Garden
Frances Hodgson Burnetts The Secret Garden has come to dominate its authors literary reputation. This session represents an opportunity for both reflection and redirection. How has The Secret Garden served the field of childrens literature in recent decades? What have traditional readings missed? Is there any way that The Secret Garden can lead us to investigate other aspects of Burnetts life and career, such as her insistent self-identification as both British and American, her receding importance as a writer for adults, or her mixed emotions about times and places lost? 250-word proposals due March 15, 2010.
