Stop Press: MA Bursaries

The NCRCL is offering two Children’s Literature MA bursaries of £1,500 each (one for the on-site programme and one for the distance learners).

This is an exciting opportunity to come and study one of the highly respected and challenging postgraduate programmes run by the NCRCL. The bursaries are open to UK/EU and international applicants, full and part-time. They will be awarded to individuals who demonstrate the potential for excellence. The deadline for bursary applications is 31 July 2012 and more information can be found here:


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.
