About the conference

This one-day conference, hosted by the University of Antwerp, seeks to examine the representation of science in children’s literature, as well as innovative theoretical approaches that explore children’s literature from cross-disciplinary perspectives, such as cognitive studies and evolutionary criticism.

Our keynote speakers are Maria Nikolajeva and Daniel Feldman. Jan Paul Schutten, author of non-fiction for children, will talk about his use and adaptation of science in children's books.
