This five-day programme focuses on four thematic strands in children’s literature research:
All participants will attend all the plenary lectures (not just the ones listed in their preferred thematic strands). They are then divided into small, interactive workshops according to their preferred thematic strand. In addition, they take part in a walking seminar and an excursion or optional PhD training programme.
Spaces in the workshops are limited, so if you have a clear preference, it’s best to register early to secure your place. Unfortunately, we cannot reserve spaces for students who have not completed registration.
Abstracts and reading lists will become available in the course of November and December. Each workshop includes a list with required advance reading. All participants are expected to complete this reading before the start of the workshop. A PDF of the academic articles and chapters will be provided on Blackboard, which will become available to participants a few weeks before the summer school starts. Participants are expected to get hold of the primary reading materials themselves.
Most workshops also list an assignment for students who want to earn credits for the summer school. Please respect the deadlines and guidelines for submission.
