Many Worlds to Walk In: A One Day Conference Exploring Diversity in Children’s Literature, Librarianship, and Education
UBC’s Biennial Children’s Literature Graduate Research conference will be held on 30th April, 2016 at UBC’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre! The conference will showcase graduate student research and creative writing that explores, questions and analyses issues surrounding the topic of diversity in children’s literature. This may include research on narratives that depict diversity as well as the diverse formats we use to create and share narratives. We’re excited to be welcoming Dr Naomi Hamer (University of Winnipeg) and Dr Renee Hill (Syracuse University) to UBC as keynote speakers!
