Panel on Mexico for 2007 Conference
The International Committee is planning a special country focus panel on Mexico for the 2007 conference in Christopher Newport University, Newport News, VA (June 14–16, 2007). The Committee invites papers that focus on any aspect of Mexican children's literature. The Association will sponsor one scholar from Mexico to present a paper at this panel.
The winner will receive up to US $2,000 toward documented expenses related to the conference. The candidate must present his or her paper in person in English. While the grant will be awarded only to an indigenous scholar, the Committee strongly encourages ChLA members interested in this region to submit to this panel papers on Mexican children's literature and literature of the Mexican diaspora as well.
A paper or a two-page proposal, with an accompanying cover letter, should be submitted to:
International Committee, Children's Literature Association
P.O. Box 138
Battle Creek, MI 49016-0138
or electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2006.
