Marah Gubar

Marah Gubar, associate professor of Literature at MIT, is the author of Artful Dodgers: Reconceiving the Golden Age of Children’s Literature (Oxford University Press, 2009). She is currently working on a second book entitled How to Think About Children: Childhood Studies in the Academy and Beyond. It attempts to generate a theoretical framework for thinking about what it means to be a child that could function as a shared language, enabling researchers across the arts, sciences, and humanities to communicate their key insights about children and childhood not only with each other, but also with people outside of academia.
