Newcastle Children’s Literature Master Classes 2015
The Future of the Subject: Archives
6-7 August 2015
Newcastle University and Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books
In August 2015 the Children’s Literature Unit in the School of English at Newcastle University will be hosting a series of children’s literature Master Classes concentrated in two days. The classes will be led by a distinguished, international team of children’s literature scholars. The overall subject will be ‘The Future of the Subject’, with a particular focus on Archives. This reflects the recent archival turn in literary studies and will focus attention on the fascinating material in the archives of Seven Stories, the UK’s national centre for children’s books, based in Newcastle and co-hosting the Master Classes. Participants will have the opportunity to work directly with material from the Seven Stories archives, and will be trained in some of the skills they will need as emerging scholars in the field of children’s literature.
The Master Classes are designed principally for high-level undergraduates and graduate students (master’s and doctoral), although anyone at an early stage in a career involving research in children’s literature is welcome to apply for a place. The Classes will be delivered to a maximum of 14 participants, and selection will be competitive.
