Conference: "Putting the Figure on the Map," in September 2013

“Putting the Figure on the Map: Imagining Sameness and Difference for Children”
Interdisciplinary Conference hosted by the Cotsen Children's Library at Princeton University
September 11-13, 2013 

This interdisciplinary program co-organized by Emer O’Sullivan (Leuphana University Lüneburg) and Andrea Immel (Cotsen Children's Library Princeton) will draw on the approaches in imagology, history, anthropology, psychology, and literary criticism. It will focus on modes of expression arising within or without the classroom that either target children or appropriate discourses for them that create competing, complimentary, or contradictory images of foreign nations and their peoples. The program will also feature a session where primary resources from the Cotsen collection will be highlighted.

Registration:  free to Princeton University students, faculty and staff; $25 for all others.  You may register online at the conference site.
