Keywords For Children's Literature Paul, Lissa


Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, and hosted by the Master of Arts in Children's Literature (MACL) program, the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the Departments of Language and Literacy Education, English, and the Creative Writing Program, SLAIS presents Lissa Paul. As scholars working in children’s literature know all too well, cross‐disciplinary conversations are often uneasy. Though librarians, literary scholars, educators, cultural studies and media specialists may critique the same primary texts, what they say and how they say it very much depends on the critical vocabularies of their particular disciplines. In developing Keywords for Children’s Literature, editors Philip Nel and Lissa Paul responded to the need for a shared vocabulary by inviting internationally renowned authors and scholars from a range of disciplines to map the histories and etymologies of key conflicted terms in the field. In her talk, Lissa will preview some of the engaging essays in the book, beginning with her key to the word ‘keyword.’
