Beyond the Children's Paper Book

Presiding Officer: 
Russell McDermott, University of Southern California

With the rise of the internet, computers, ipads, and other new media, children's books have begun to transform into post-books, new book-game or book-movie hybrids that are changing the nature of the children's book in the 21st century. In this session, we will theorize the roots of the change (how the new technological post-paper books are different from or similar to other earlier book-hybrids like pop-up books, book-toy hybrids, and book-game hybrids) and the ramifications (material, political,  pedagogic, and aesthetic) of the new media.
