4th International Seminar on New Directions in Children’s Literature

Dal 25.02.2019 al 14.03.2019

The 4th International Seminar on New Directions in Children’s Literature Research will be held on March 14, 2019 at  the Aula Magna in Rovigo (CUR), Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Education and Applied Psychology (FISPPA), University of Padova, Italy.
Children’s literature can be a force that drives the development of content knowledge as well as prompting a sense of wonder, and a connection between humans and the rest of the natural world.  Non-fiction picturebooks can be an important stimulus for kids to ask questions about the world, find ways to gain a clearer understanding of scientific ideas and form connections between scientific and artistic ideas and their real life experiences and prior knowledge.

In this context, the International Seminar’s main theme is “The Place of Science in Children’s Literature”. The aim of the seminar is to bring together leading academics, researchers, independent scholars, authors and illustrators to share their knowledge and new ideas, and to discuss future developments in this field.
