Call for Papers for the 1st International Conference “Fostering dialogue. Teaching Children’s Literature at University Level”.
While there is considerable literature concerning the teaching of children’s literature in primary and secondary classrooms, there has been relative silence about how and what we teach in this field at university level. This conference will be breaking this silence by providing a forum for perspectives on teaching children’s literature at tertiary institutions from around the world.
The conference is organized by Marnie Campagnaro (University of Padua, Italy), Nicola Daly (University of Waikato, New Zealand), Nina Goga (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Norway) and Kathy Short (University of Arizona, United States).
It will take place on November 19-21, 2020 at the University of Padua (Italy).
