Adaptations have always played an important role in the field of children’s literature. During this symposium, we want to explore the relationship between the status of the source text and the act of adaptation, in general and more specifically in children’s literature.
Key note speakers:
- Vanessa Joosen (Antwerp University, Belgium)
- Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer (University of Tübingen, Germany; guest professor in memory of Astrid Lindgren at Växjö University, Sweden)
- Julie Sanders (University of Nottingham, United Kingdom)
- John Stephens (Macquarie University, Australia)
In addition, British author Aidan Chambers will discuss adaptations of his work.
