Conference Theme: “Animation”
The theme for ChLA 2016 is “Animation.” This concept reflects new developments in both the aesthetic creation and the critical analysis of children’s and YA literature. The idea of “Animation” has a special significance for OSU, given the campus’ well-known comics collection and cartoon museum, its Wexner Center for the Arts, and its Advanced Computing Center for Art and Design (ACCAD). Moreover, we feel that the theme “Animation”— defined variously as “inspiration, vivacity and liveliness” as well as “continuous motion or shape change”—will inspire a wide variety of possible paper topics.
