Tamer Institute for Community Education is pleased to announce its first pioneer conference regarding “The Development of Criticism Approaches in Arabic Children Literature”, which will be held at Haya Cultural Center in Jordan from the 21th till the 22nd of November 2018. The conference aims to provide a platform for intellectual mobility on the criticism movement and an opportunity to strengthen and enhance the criticism movement in the field of both children’s and adolescent literature. Thus, hosting international and local researchers and academics will offer new perspectives on literary criticism and will widen its framework.
Within this context, the importance of having a conference that achieves two interrelated goals, summarized in the following:
• To provide a platform for intellectual mobility on the criticism movement of children's literature and the literature of adolescents in the Arab world by highlighting the nature of the relationship between the productive movement and the criticism movement and the difference between them in the Arab context.
• To provide the opportunity to enrich the movement of criticism in the field of children's literature and the literature of adolescents through (1) providing studies for the most important contemporary criticism issues (2) analyzing the concepts and tools used in the criticism of children's literature and adolescent’s literature, (3) providing critiques of different publications, to form examples for various stakeholders and actors in the field of criticism. (4) Building partnerships between institutions and individuals working in the field of children's literature.
It is expected at this conference to make recommendations regarding the factors and conditions of growth of the criticism movement, moving it away from its limited framework. This will contribute to the development of children's literature and adolescent literature.
Tamer Institute will share the agenda and confirm further details on the venue closer to the date. Meanwhile, it would be appreciated if you could please mark your calendars and RSVP to Tamer at Haneen@tamerinst.org by 10 November 2018 latest.
We look forward to productive discussions, and your continued engagement in this process.
