Children’s Literature: a Critical Masterclass

Children’s Literature: a Critical Masterclass
Wednesday 5 February, 1pm
Convent Parlour, Roehampton

You are invited to a Children’s Literature Critical Masterclass next Wednesday lunchtime. We are very lucky to have not just one but two eminent children’s literature professors visiting Roehampton next Wednesday. Peter Hunt, Professor Emeritus of Cardiff University will be joined by David Rudd, Professor of Children’s Literature at the University of Bolton. Both are renowned international critics and authors of seminal works in the field, and have actively promoted children’s literature in English departments. Peter Hunt’s most recent publication is How Did Long John Silver Lose his Leg?: and Twenty-Six Other Mysteries of Children’s Literature and David Rudd has just published Reading the Child in Children’s Literature: An Heretical Approach.

They will be talking about their experiences and sharing their wisdom – you are all welcome to come along with questions about children’s literature studies: history, theory, criticism, education, research, careers, examining – anything you want to know! It promises to be a lively lunch hour.

  1. Why do I still live in the Netherlands? Why? Why? Wish I could be there.
    Was reading an essay by David Rudd this very morning! He is amazing!
