Drawing on the expertise of scholars in many fields, the publication "Keywords for Children’s Literature" responded, in 2011, to the need for a shared vocabulary by mapping the history of key terms and explaining how they came to be used in conflicted ways. It presented 49 original essays on the essential terms and concepts of the field.
It was published to critical acclaim, but also to criticism of its Anglocentrism, a criticism taken seriously by its editors Philip Nel and Lissa Paul. A new, greatly expanded edition with a host of international scholars and international advisory board is currently in preparation.
