Maps and Mapping in Children's Literature : Landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes Hardback

Edited by Nina (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences) Goga, Bettina (University of Tubingen) Kummerling-Meibauer

Part of the Children's Literature, Culture, and Cognition series


Maps and Mapping in Children's Literature is the first comprehensive study that investigates the representation of maps in children's books as well as the impact of mapping on the depiction of landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes in children's literature.

The chapters in this volume pursue a comparative approach as they represent a wide spectrum of diverse genres and national children's literatures by examining a wealth of children's books from Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Norway, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the USA.

The theoretical and methodological approaches range from literary studies, developmental psychology, maps and geography literacy, ecocriticism, historical contextualization with both new historicist and political-historical leanings, and intermediality to materialist cartographies, cultural studies, island studies, and genre studies.

By this, this volume aims at embedding children's literature in a broader field of literary and cultural studies, thus situating children's literature research within a general context of literary theory.
