This series recognises and supports innovative work on the child
and on literature for children and adolescents that informs
teaching and engages with current and emerging debates in the
field. Proposals are welcome for interdisciplinary and comparative
studies by humanities scholars working in a variety of fields,
including literature; book history, periodicals history, and print
culture and the sociology of texts; theater, film, musicology, and
performance studies; history, including the history of education;
gender studies; art history and visual culture; cultural studies;
Topics might include, among other possibilities, how concepts
and representations of the child have changed in response to adult
concerns; postcolonial and transnational perspectives; 'domestic
imperialism' and the acculturation of the young within and across
class and ethnic lines; the commercialisation of childhood and
children's bodies; views of young people as consumers and/or
originators of culture; the child and religious discourse;
children's and adolescents' self-representations; and adults'
recollections of childhood.
