On the study of Children’s Lit

Despite the weather and some of the delegates being delayed - this year’s ISSCL conference is still going ahead in Dublin. The conference is titled Nation, Translation, Migration and features talks on Terry Pratchett, Shaun Tan and Siobhan Dowd as well as panelled discussions tomorrow.

If you do nothing else today - have a look at the conference site and, if you’re in the area, maybe visit the keynote address at 7 tonight. (E Block, Room 210, St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra.) The keynote speaker is the Prof. Maria Nikolajeva - discussing The (Un)changing Stereotypes in Swedish Young Adult Fiction.
