Four Conversations will take place via Zoom monthly February-May 2021, to explore and discuss issues around representation, social justice, colonialism, and anti-racism in Irish and international youth literature. These Conversations are free for all attendees in order to increase access and to support students and early-career researchers to be able to attend. We hope to provide a thought-provoking and valuable shared space for reflecting about and exploring the ethics and practices of representation in children’s and young adult literature and culture.
