Taster Session: Walter Crane Research Talk

The NCRCL present a number of research talks throughout the year and we would particularly like to invite anyone interested in studying for the MA Children’s Literature at Roehampton to come along to the next one. Lesley Delaney from University College London and the Victoria & Albert Museum will be speaking on

‘Walter Crane and the Decorative Art of Learning to Read’


The talk is at 17.30 on Tuesday 27 March, in Duchesne 001, and will be followed by a chance to talk to members of the MA teaching team.

Come along for some wine and nibbles and a fascinating evening!

About Alison Waller

I am a Senior Lecturer at the National Centre for Research in Children's Literature (NCRCL) at Roehampton University in London. My main research areas are young adult fiction and the practice and philosophy of reading. My monograph Constructions of Adolescence in Fantastic Realism was published by Routledge in 2009 and I have also edited a collection of essays for the Palgrave Macmillan New Casebook Series on Melvin Burgess (2013). I am currently working on a project called Rereading Childhood Books: a Poetics, which asks how adults reread and negotiate relationships with books from their pasts.
