The Schubert Center Welcomes Cara Byrne as Research Advisor on Diverse Children’s Literature

The Schubert Center is pleased to have Cara Byrne, Ph.D., a full-time lecturer in the Department of English and a SAGES (Seminar Approach to General Education) Teaching Fellow, take on the Research Advisor on Diverse Children’s Literature role during our work with the Cleveland Foundation’s Common Ground and Book Week events. She will set the intellectual and content agenda for these events, leading a discussion on diversity in children’s literature during Common Ground and facilitating the center’s participation in the first book week event featuring children’s picture books. Byrne will develop a resource guide on diversity in children’s literature to be distributed by the center and will advise the center on other possibilities for research-practice-policy collaborations.
