Release of Home Words: Discourses of Children’s Literature in Canada Literature in Canada

Home Words Cover

The eleven essays in Home Words explore the complexity of the idea of “home” through various theoretical lenses and various groupings of books, each considering the ways in which discourses of home underwrite both children’s literature and national literatures. Home Words reconfigures the field of Canadian children’s literature as it is usually represented, by setting the study of English-language and French-language texts side by side, and by paying sustained attention to the work of Aboriginal Canadian writers for children and the writing of “new Canadians” of colour.

University of Winnipeg contributors include: Mavis Reimer, Anne Rusnak, Doris Wolf, Paul DePasquale, Perry Nodelman, Deborah Schnitzer, and Neil Besner.
