Children's Literature: A Joint Venture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


This article rereads research data on young children’s literary socialisation, children’s juries of literary awards, and young adults’ life writing from the perspective of recent theories contesting the idea of aetonormativity that has dominated children’s literature studies in the past decades. It is argued that intergenerational solidarity in children’s encounters with literature might be the best imaginable practice for reading promotion.
