Course Description

Children’s Literature (M.Phil.)



This postgraduate degree programme offers an exciting opportunity to study a wide range of children’s literature – a broad category that encompasses everything from picture books through to Young Adult fiction. This course addresses chronologies, genres, modes of criticism, readerships, publishing trends and the full apparatus of literary investigation, while exploring the unique power dynamics that arise from adult authors creating texts for younger readers.

Students of different nationalities and from diverse backgrounds and disciplines have successfully completed the programme.

Many graduates have careers in areas such as editing, publishing, arts management, journalism, curation, teaching, librarianship, and academia. Over the years, students have worked with leading academics in the field, attended guest lectures by local and international scholars and authors, applied for funding opportunities to research archives at Yale University and at Trinity, collaborated with Children’s Books Ireland on their ‘Bold Girls’ initiative, curated an exhibition in Trinity Library’s Long Room (see Story Spinners: Irish Women and Children’s Books), created podcasts with International Literature Festival Dublin, and immersed themselves in the vibrant children’s literature community at the School of English.

Closing Date: 31st March 2022
