CFP: Creating New Possibilities: Children’s Lit Theory as Creative Act
Creativity and play are often associated with children but rarely with children’s literature scholarship. In an effort to engage with this year’s theme of “literary slipstreams,” this panel will consider the possibilities that arise from merging creative work with traditional literary scholarship. We invite proposals that deviate from the traditional format of the paper presentation and incorporate creative aspects (e.g., original films, poems, music, etc.). Some criticism should be included, however, in order to demonstrate the benefit of a creative approach in scholarship about children’s literature and culture.
Please send a 300-500 word abstract, a brief bio, and 5 bibliographic sources to Emily Murphy (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 31. Decisions will be emailed by January 5th before the ChLA submission deadline.
