Dr. Nancy G. Rosoff, dean for graduate and undergraduate studies, presented a paper titled “‘There are other people to consider besides myself’: Lessons Offered from American and British School and College Fiction” at the Society for the History of Children and Youth Sixth Biennial Conference, held in Nottingham, England. In the paper, Rosoff discussed how teenage readers could learn about such ideals as being a member of a community, a status that required a certain degree of conformity but in search of a common good; about being a good sport and caring for others more than one’s self; and about helping those less fortunate.
