About this product
- DescriptionBringing together the voices of leading and emerging scholars, this book provides an invative and accessible guide to using theory to study children's literature and film. Integrating key theoretical approaches and thinkers from across feminism, ecocriticism, postcolonialism and poststructuralism, the book shows how these can be used as tools to analyse a range of contemporary children's literature and film texts. The book will be at the cutting-edge of scholarship, combining new approaches to t only locate children's texts within changing social, cultural and political contexts, but also to help navigate a changing 'post-theory' era.
