Name Change and New Term
In order to befuddle and confound you (and, I suppose, to better reflect what it is we actually do) we have changed our name to the Children's Literature and Youth Culture Colloquium. This change takes into account our interest in young adult literature and media beyond the printed page, and also reflects the flexibility of age categories when it comes to the texts that we study and discuss. We are gearing up now for the start of an exciting new year, which will feature our conference in March at Keble College (stay tuned for more: Philip Pullman will deliver the keynote and confirmed speakers include Peter Hunt, Maria Nikolajeva, Diane Purkiss, and Margaret Kean) in addition to our biweekly seminar series.
