Place and Space Conference Begins!

The Place and Space in Children's Literature Conference opens this evening with Philip Pullman's keynote speech in Keble College's O'Reilly Theatre. This weekend we will welcome over 100 delegates representing institutions in more than thirteen countries to Oxford, including some of the most eminent names in children's literature studies. Prof. Peter Hunt, Prof. Maria Nikolajeva, Dr. Farah Mendlesohn, and many other children's literature academics will be speaking and participating during what promises to be a very rich conference.
