Call for Papers:
Phoenix Award Session
Deadline: October 1, 2017
45th Annual Children’s Literature Association Conference
Hosted by Texas State University in San Antonio
June 28-30, 2018
The Phoenix Award Committee and the Phoenix Picture Book Award Committee of the Children’s Literature Association are planning a joint session at the 45th Children’s Literature Association Conference, held in San Antonio from June 28 to 30, 2018, and hosted by Texas State University. The Phoenix Awards recognize exceptional books published twenty years previously that did not win a major award at the time, but that the committees have determined to be of lasting value.
The 1998/2018 Phoenix Award goes to Elizabeth Partridge for Restless Spirit: The Life and Work of Dorothea Lange (Viking, 1998).
The 1998/2018 Phoenix Picture Book Award goes to Robert D. San Souci (author), posthumously, and Brian Pinkney (illustrator) for Centrillon: A Caribbean Cinderella (Simon and Schuster, 1998).
The Picture Book Honor goes to Jacqueline Preiss Weitzman (author) and Robin Preiss Glasser (illustrator) for You Can’t Take a Balloon into the Metropolitan Museum (Dial, 1998).
Foremost, the panel organizers seek paper proposals that focus scholarly attention on the winning and honor books. Papers on other books by the awarded authors and illustrators are also welcome.
Proposals are due by October 1, 2017 to one of the two chairs: Phoenix Committee Chair Lois Rauch Gibson (email@example.com ) or Phoenix Picture Book Committee Chair Alisa Clapp-Itnyre (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Authors will be notified by October 10, 2017, if their papers have been selected as part of the panel. If not selected for the panel, the authors may elect to submit their papers to the general conference. The call deadline for the 2018 ChLA conference is October 15, 2017.

Children’s and YA Literature at Midwest Modern Language Association 2017 November 9-12 in Cincinnati, OH
In recognition of this year’s conference theme, “Artists and Activists,” we welcome papers that explore issues in children’s and young adult literature broadly, but especially invite those that explore the ways that writers of literature for young people have addressed issues of politics, advocacy, and social justice. In our conversations, we hope to think about the place of literature and activism in the lives of young people.
Topics could include, but are by no means limited to:
· The role of the child in society;
· satire as social commentary;
· the place of education in society;
· environmental literature;
· gender identities, trans- identities, and activism;
· ethnic identities and activism;
· digital literacies and digital citizenship.
Please send 250-word abstracts to Megan Musgrave at email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> by April 5, 2017. Your abstract should include your name, rank, institutional affiliation, and email. *If you are interested in proposing a complete panel, please contact me about including it in our Children’s and YA Literature cohort this year.
