Thank you for the well-worded essay and for making the case for intellectual vigor! One should be forgiven for sometimes thinking that much of the world has forgotten that intellectual work is, of its nature, critical. (I'm familiar with your work from the Yearbook of the German Children's Literature Research Society. I copyedited your 2018 contribution, which was also a very interesting read. I hope I'm not breaking some ethical rule by divulging that information here. If so, Laura, please edit.)
