If you’re in Gainesville next Friday and Saturday (the 28 and 29 of October) there’s only one place you should be: at the English Graduate Organization’s annual conference. The conference theme this year is “Nothing New Under the Sun? Novelty, Game-Changing, and Genre-Breaking” and there are some excellent papers lined up. Check out the conference program — it includes two awesome panels devoted to children’s literature.
The highlight of the conference will be the keynote address by Dr. Richard Flynn from Georgia Southern University. His talk, titled “My Folk Revival: Childhood, Politics and Popular Music”, is “part of a creative/scholarly memoir in progress about the intersection of music, politics, youth and privilege in the late 1960s and early 1970s”. I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Flynn speak at ChLA this summer, and I can assure you that you don’t want to miss it.
Saturday, October 29, at 6PM in Library East room 1A: Be there!
