Crossing Paths. Exploring Research Methods in Children’s Literature

International Conference
New Directions in Children’s Literature Research

21-22 March 2024

University of Padova

The Research Group in Children’s Literature (LETIN UNIPD) within the Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Pedagogy, and Applied Psychology FISPPA at the University of Padova is hosting the International Conference on “New Directions in Children’s Literature Research.” This conference brings together both Italian and international researchers to explore innovative approaches in the field of children’s literature. The conference offers a unique opportunity to delve into the complexities of the subject through a variety of research methodologies.

The program will encompass both theoretical discussions and practical workshops, allowing attendees to gain hands-on experience with the tools and techniques employed by leading scholars. Children’s literature, by its very nature, is a subject that invites diverse perspectives. The conference acknowledges this by embracing a truly interdisciplinary approach, from historical and comparative analysis to multimodal content studies, up to reader-response theory, life writing and biographical studies.

The Conference is intended for students currently enrolled in the Children’s Literature course within the Education Sciences programme, Primary Teacher Education and the postgraduate Course in Children’s Literature at the University of Padova.
