How Do Our Views About Hair Affect Children?
From Barbie, Britney and Rapunzel to Pocahontas and Beyoncé, matters related to hair can be quite complicated when it comes to race, gender and class. A special issue of The Lion and the Unicorn will look at how hair affects the politics of identity in children's literature and for children generally. Submit essays of 15-20 pages (4,500-6,000 words) and a 250-word abstract by noon July 1, 2012, to editor Neal A. Lester, Dean of Humanities and Professor of English at Arizona State University.
