The 15th International Child and the Book Conference

Transformation and Continuity: Political and Cultural Changes in Children’s Literature from the Past Century to the Present Day

 The 15th International Child and the Book Conference (ext.Link)

"Tying in with political and cultural changes in Germany and Europe, this conference focuses on current discourses on the significance of democratic systems in opposition to authoritarian regimes, to fathom the transformation but also continuities in children’s and young adult literature since the beginning of the 20th century to the present day. In the disjunction of democracy and authoritarianism, value patterns regarding the degree of freedom, political equality and control can be questioned by ideological bipolarities, such as nationalism vs. globalism, xenophobia vs. philanthropy and migration vs. isolation. These broad forces shape the future of young generations, but also resonate with the past, and therefore cannot be seen outside the context of tensions between transformation and historical continuity – as is visible throughout post-war Europe and in the city of Berlin in particular."

The 15th Child and the Book Conference will be held online from 24-26 March 2021.
