Othering and Same-ing for the Young. Expanding the Theoretical and Material Horizons of Imagology with Children's Literature

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearchpeer-review


Children’s literature has largely flown under the radar of imagology, the branch of comparative studies that explores the literary representation of ethnotypes. Drawing on recent research in imagology and related areas, and analysing a number of picturebooks, the article shows how engaging with multimodal children’s books not only expands the material corpus for imagological research but also broadens and enriches its theoretical and methodological repertoires.
