The UC Berkeley Children's Literature Working Group presents a one-day conference on the intersections between children's literature and notions of the canon. The conference will address such topics as how canons are defined within children's literature; how children's literature operates within national, transnational, and postcolonial canons; and how traditional notions of canonicity are being reshaped through children's literature in new media.
Sponsored by the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities and the Center for British Studies.
