Inhoud
In this course, students gain insight into how children’s literature functions in an international context. Specifically, at its core is transnational canon formation in children’s literature. It is closely entwined with the TiU core course ‘Children’s Literature in Translation’.
The course focuses on the concepts “classic”, “canon” and “adaptation”, and discusses current and historical examples of canonical/classical works crossing boundaries. It studies the transmission of cultural and literary heritage in children’s literature. In addition to classics of children’s literature, we pay attention to a.o. popular series fiction for children and young adults. The cases are discussed with reference to concepts and models that are borrowed from a.o. canon theory, (cultural) memory studies, written folklore, adaptation studies, feminist literary criticism, and postcolonial criticism.
