IRSCL to issue statement defending academic freedom

On Universal Children’s Day, 20 November 2017, the International Research Society for Children’s Literature (IRSCL) will issue a Statement of Principles, because it is worried about the ways in which contemporary geopolitics curtail academic freedom. The Statement will be released as a collection of videos featuring IRSCL members reading the statement in their native language. Prof Lies Wesseling is the President of IRSCL.
