Despite our hopes, the “Controversial Dimensions of Children’s Literature” International conference, which we moved from March to September due to the coronavirus pandemic, cannot take place in 2020. It is forbidden to organise and participate in conferences at our university until further notice. The borders of many countries are still closed, and universities restrict the mobility of students and staff also in the winter semester of the coming academic year. The further postponement of the conference is therefore risky – also because some of the research that participants have carried out while preparing their papers may become obsolete.
For these reasons, we decided to cancel the conference, but we do not resign from the publication of the papers which were originally to be delivered at the conference.
Additionally, we would like to invite you to a series of the three keynote lectures, which were originally to be delivered at the conference. More details coming soon!
