UK university courses in Children's Literature and Book Illustration Seeing as you’re here reading my blog, you no doubt have an interest in children’s literature, and the art to be found in books for children but have you ever thought about taking that interest further, and studying at university, as an evening course, or at a summer school? Thanks to a query from Catherine Butler, originally posted on the JISCMail’s Children’s Literature UK list, I’ve gathered together the UK university courses which include at least a module on children’s literature, or illustrating books for children and young people. Even if you don’t want to take an academic course (though do read this article by former Children’s Laureate, Michael Rosen on “why it pays to study children’s literature“), many of the links below include reading lists and course outlines, and offer plenty more books to add to your TBR pile! Children’s literature courses at UK Universities The University of Roehampton offers an MA/PGDip in Children’s Literature . All errors are of course my own.
Livres pour enfants : les clichés sexistes n'ont jamais été aussi présents Que les angoissés d’une pseudo «théorie du genre», de nature à gommer toute différence entre garçons et filles, se rassurent. Vraiment. Faites un tour dans n’importe quelle librairie jeunesse, vous verrez : des rayons entiers de livres pour enfants reproduisant parfaitement les clichés et les stéréotypes. Des livres roses, avec des paillettes, des histoires de fées et de princesses qui poireautent en attendant leur chevalier.

Indicazioni Nazionali: punti essenziali per una didattica in continuità – di Rosella Tirico Con l’avvicendarsi delle diverse Indicazioni Nazionali e degli Orientamenti programmatici europei e mondiali, pubblicati in questo ultimo decennio, si potrebbe avere l’impressione che il curricolo corra il rischio di appiattirsi su scelte predeterminate a livello nazionale/internazionale e comunque condizionate dai contesti sociali vicini e lontani e che tenda a perdere forza e consistenza l’autonomia dell’insegnamento e delle singole istituzioni scolastiche, la cui unica preoccupazione è raggiungere i Traguardi, le Competenze Chiave europee ed il successo formativo. Non dobbiamo dimenticare, però, che i Documenti nazionali costituiscono un punto di riferimento imprescindibile, ma sono un testo aperto nella realizzazione del processo educativo che vede assoluti protagonisti gli alunni, le famiglie ed i docenti. Elementi essenziali per un curricolo in continuità.
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. 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.

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. 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.
