Omdat anderen in het Nederlandstalig kinderboekengebied dit soort oproepen niet plaatsen, doe ik het bijgaand, is per slot een kansje voor jeugdliteratuuronderzoekers uit ons taalgebied:

Approaching War: Childhood, Culture and the First World War, 1880-1919
An International Leverhulme Trust Project
International Conference 3
Approaching War: Europe
Newcastle University, UK, 15-17 March, 2013
This is the third of three conferences aimed at producing a website and books to provide teachers, academics, and the interested public with a rich and diverse resource of materials on childhood, children’s culture and children’s literature in the period 1890-1919. The searchable website will consist of video recordings of the conference papers, backed up by summaries, images, links and bibliographies; the published volumes will contain expanded versions of the conference papers.
We are inviting proposals for papers on any aspect of childhood, children’s culture and children’s literature in this period, relating to the approach of war. Topics might include
Toys, Games and Ephemera
Children’s Literature before 1914 (especially poetry)
Children’s Poetry of the War
The Approach to War in Continental Europe
Materials Written by Children
The Treatment of Children and War in 20th and 21st Century Children’s Books
The proposals should be in the form of a detailed summary (about 500 words), including an indication of the (non-copyright) visual materials that you could provide for the website. In order to obtain maximum benefit from the conference, participants would be asked to produce, by 1 February, 2013 an advanced draft paper, which would then be put on the website, with access limited to those registered for the conference. At the conference, participants would be asked to give a 20-30 minute presentation, which would be digitally recorded for the website; after the conference, the deadline for the completed papers is 30 April, 2013. The papers will then be peer-reviewed for inclusion in the published volumes or on the website.
The deadline for proposals is 1 September, 2012, and we would aim to let you know by early October whether the proposal has been accepted.
Some bursaries for travel and accommodation will be available.
