About us

The Centre for Research on Children’s and Young Adult Literature is based at the Faculty of Letters, the University of Wrocław. It was established on 1 December, 2017. The research carried out at CBLDM focuses on children’s literature and culture. Continuing the tradition of researching children’s literature at the Faculty of Letters, which dates back to the 1960s, the CBLDM members intensify it, bringing together various scholarly perspectives, both those strongly rooted at the Faculty (e.g. historical and cultural criticism, reader-response studies, translation studies, media studies, linguistics, library and information science) and those originating from other fields (e.g. popular culture studies, gender studies, participatory research, child-led research, memory studies). The Centre organizes conferences, seminars and workshops, participates in international projects, develops collaboration with similar research units and cultural institutions in Poland and abroad, and disseminates knowledge about children’s literature.
