International Conference at Växjö University, Sweden, 18-20 September 2008
The conference will focus on Astrid Lindgren in the light of international children’s literature research, narratology, picturebook research, and media theory. These theoretical frameworks are indispensable for the concept of intermediality that focuses on the intimate relationships between different media. This concept calls attention to the transgression of media boundaries when at least two different media are concerned.
