Lectures and workshops on children's and YA literature


The Children's Literature summer school offers plenary lectures, workshops and optional activities related to books for children and adolescents. Participants choose workshops from four thematic strands in children’s literature research:

  • creative writing
  • fairy tales
  • picturebooks
  • politics

​This summer school is mainly targeted at Master and PhD students, but also open to more senior researchers and professionals with an interest in children’s literature studies. Participants should have at least completed 3 full years of undergraduate education (BA level) by the time of the summer school.

PhD students are given the opportunity to present their research projects or give a 20-minute paper in two workshops that will be reserved for this purpose. They will be invited to submit an abstract when they register for the summer school.


Stay tuned for the programme.


3-6 ECTS credits are awarded upon successful completion of the programme. Note that University of Antwerp students can only register for 6 ECTS.
