Children’s Texts and Material Cultures: A Research Snapshot Symposium 
The Association for Research in Cultures of Young People (ARCYP) is holding a day-long symposium at Ryerson University on March 6, 2020. This symposium will include presentations by leading scholars in the field of young people’s cultures, and provide opportunities for graduate students (and recent grads) to workshop and receive feedback on their research.

The day will include workshops on emerging research in the field and ‘research snapshot’ panels featuring shorter presentations around key research questions and research-in-progress (5-10 minutes each) with time for discussion, feedback and dialogue. 

ARCYP welcomes all research on young people’s texts and cultures, including presentations that fall under the broad symposium theme of “Children’s Texts and Material Cultures.” This is a great opportunity to discuss your research and network with emerging and established scholars in the interdisciplinary field of young people’s cultures. We especially welcome submissions from graduate students and new scholars. 

The event coincides with a keynote lecture at 5:00 PM March 5, 2020 by Dr. Kristine Alexander (Canada Research Chair in Child and Youth Studies, University of Lethbridge) co-hosted by the MA in Literatures of Modernity and the Department English at Ryerson. There will be an informal concluding symposium reception on March 6. All symposium participants and ARCYP members are invited to attend both of these events. 

If you are interested in participating, please submit an abstract (300 words) and bio (100 words) to by February 14.
