About the conference

Alf Prøysen’s authorship for children

Hedmark University College, Campus Hamar, is pleased to announce an international conference on the Norwegian author Alf Prøysen as a writer of children’s literature, at 11-12 June 2012. Prøysen’s writings for children have so far been modestly treated within the research field of children’s literature, and the conference aims at shedding light on this part of the authorship. In addition to invited keynote speakers from the field of children’s literature, the conference invites proposals for paper presentations on any aspect of Prøysen’s authorship for children.
