This panel for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) Conference welcomes submissions that explore how popular adventure fiction/boy’s books of the long nineteenth century were used as agents of social change. While often viewed as works for adolescents, such novels played subversive roles in dismantling traditional ideas and establishing new cultural norms. We are especially interested in papers that explore novels set in locations outside the colonial center that worked to challenge British assumptions about education/the educational system.

Throughout Latin American history, children have often been marginalized subjects exposed to multiple forms of violence – from the microcosm of the family to the macrocosm of society.
