Re-conceptualising picturebook theory in the digital age. Ghada Al-Yaqout1 and Maria Nikolajeva2* 1English Department, College of Basic Education, PAAET, Kuwait; 2Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK Contemporary picturebook theory has produced a wide range of concepts and terms for the analysis of the various aspects of conventional picturebooks.

Re-conceptualising picturebook theory in the digital age

However, as picturebooks are rapidly entering the digital age, there is an urgent need to keep picturebook theory up to date. The multimodal nature of picturebooks, that so far has predominantly implied a combination of the verbal and the visual modes, is expanding to include auditory, tactile, and performative dimensions. This article explores the ways that digital picturebooks, or apps, demand not only new approaches, but also new terminology to describe features characteristic of the new medium, as well as conventional picturebook features acquiring a new significance in digital picturebooks.

Comparative phylogenetic analyses uncover the ancient roots of Indo-European folktales. Abstract Ancient population expansions and dispersals often leave enduring signatures in the cultural traditions of their descendants, as well as in their genes and languages.

Comparative phylogenetic analyses uncover the ancient roots of Indo-European folktales

The international folktale record has long been regarded as a rich context in which to explore these legacies. To date, investigations in this area have been complicated by a lack of historical data and the impact of more recent waves of diffusion. In this study, we introduce new methods for tackling these problems by applying comparative phylogenetic methods and autologistic modelling to analyse the relationships between folktales, population histories and geographical distances in Indo-European-speaking societies.

We find strong correlations between the distributions of a number of folktales and phylogenetic, but not spatial, associations among populations that are consistent with vertical processes of cultural inheritance. 1. 2. 2.1 Data 2.2 Trees 2.3 Testing for phylogenetic signal 2.4 Autologistic analyses 3. 4.

Le fiabe sono più antiche di quanto pensiamo

Alcune, anche di quelle famosissime, sono narrate da migliaia e migliaia di anni, molto prima che la scrittura potesse tramandarle. Altre risalgono a tempi in cui le lingue che usiamo oggi non si erano ancora formate. - Il mondo dell'editoria per bambini e ragazzi, in rete.

The origins of children’s literature. Children's Literature. An acquaintance with and an understanding of literary characters is one of the first ways a young child has of making sense of what it is to be human.

Children's Literature

We all come to know more clearly who and what we are while reaching out, imaginatively, for what we might become. As the child dwells in and wonders at the lives lived in story, she comes to know both herself and the world and begins to see that world as something over which she, as a character in life, might exercise some control. The events of story are a means of exploration of the world, helping her to confirm, to illuminate, and to extend her own life experiences, in ways that give her power over them. Story gives public form to private meanings and thus helps those who receive its messages to reach out to other human beings in the world, knowing that they share some of the same concerns and feelings.
