International Conference Slavic Worlds of Imagination 2: Borders of Tolerance

Cracow, 24th September 2018-25th September 2018

Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe has been an area of crossing different cultures and worldviews since ages. Narrations about multicultural communities, minorities and tolerance used to be popularized or removed depending on local governments. This problem seems to be more transparent in the context of literature for children and youth, fantasy or science fiction. This conference which is the continuation of „Slavic Worlds of Imagination” will be the occasion to discuss following topics (also in comparative perspective):

tolerance/intolerance in children's and youth literatures of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe

tolerance of literary critics and pedagogues: controversial works for children and youth

“bad books” for children: borders of aesthetic and ethic tolerance

emigration, immigration and refugees in children's, youth and fantasy literature

religious, ethnic and sexual minorities in Slavic literatures for children and youth in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe

meetings of Slavic and non-Slavic characters in literature and another texts of culture

stereotypes in Slavic literatures for children and youth

child as the Other in literatures of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe


Please send us Your proposals to our e-mail: slavic.worlds.imagination@gmail.com to the 1st May 2018.

The conference fee is 400 PLN(100 EUR)/300 PLN(75 EUR) for PhD Students.
