2014 Children’s Literature Graduate Research Conference: An Invitation

Credit: Aline Frederico

Are you a Grad student or a recent graduate? Are you interested in the scholarly side of children’s literature? Do you want to get together with like-minded people and talk about YA novels or picturebooks or anything pertaining to children’s literature? I am co-chairing the planning committee of the 2014 Conference (it’s a biennial thing) which will be held on May 3rd, 2014. If you are a grad student and would like to submit a proposal, you’ll find the official call for papers over here.

Otherwise, bookmark the website, mark the date and I’ll let you know when registration opens. It’s very cheap ($18 for students, $35 for faculty and professionals, includes lunch and refreshments) and it’ll be very fun. My co-chairs, the planning committee and I are working hard to ensure it will be anyway. So yes.

Oh right, sorry (hee), the conference will be at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
