EGO Conference - Gubar

Please join the English Graduate Organization and C4W for "Listening to Children in the 1970s," a talk by Dr. Marah Gubar. Dr. Gubar will present on the conflicts between media representations of childhood in the 1970s and actual lived experiences of childhood during the decade. The event will be held on Saturday, April 14 at 7:00 PM, as part of the 2018 EGO/C4W Conference. The event is free and open to the community. 

Dr. Marah Gubar is an associate professor at MIT where she teaches children’s literature, with a particular interest in nineteenth- and twentieth-century representations of childhood and the history of children’s theatre. She completed her undergraduate work at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, including a B.F.A. in musical theatre, and received her doctorate from Princeton University. Her published works include Artful Dodgers: Reconceiving the Golden Age of Children’s Literature, which won the Children’s Literature Association’s Book Award. Kenneth Kidd calls it “a major work of scholarship,” and James Kincaid proclaims that it “advances the entire field, and by a huge margin.” Dr. Gubar has also been the recipient of the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award. Her current project is a book entitled How to Think About Children: Childhood Studies in the Academy and Beyond.
