Children’s Literature in Language Education

Posted by Mariel Amez on June 12, 2009

Hildesheim University and the Young Learner & Teenager SIG, IATEFL, are organising an international TEFL conference on children’s literature.

It will take place in Germany from 25th – 27th February 2010.

The International Conference Children’s Literature in Language Education – from Picture Books to Young Adult Fiction intends to disseminate information and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the power of literature for the young; approaches to children’s literature and young adult literature as a bridge to reading beyond school; gender considerations – the different attitudes of different readers – and the resulting consequences with regard to the canon of literary texts for EFL; and the debate around original children’s literature and graded readers.

The Call for Papers is open until July 31st.
