IRSCL 2013 to be held in the Netherlands

by Anna Blanch on July 22, 2010

The International Research Society for Children’s Literature Board has accepted the proposal of Lies Wesseling (University of Maastricht) to hold the 2013 Congress in Maastricht. Dates and details will be confirmed over the next few months. The Maastricht congress will be the first in the Netherlands and will highlight the strong research in children’s literature across the Netherlands and Belgium. Lies will chair the Congress Committee, which will include Karin Wenz (Maastricht University), Helma van Lierop (Tilburg University), Karen Ghonem-Woets (Tilburg University) and Vanessa Joosen (Antwerp University).

This follows fast on the heels of the announcement of the call for papers for the 2011 conference I posted here.
