More about the book
About the book
Nordic children’s books and media have changed greatly over the past 250 years. Form and content, materiality, concepts of childhood, and media technologies have all developed over time. The access to such media has varied too, depending on social differences and the establishment of schools, libraries, and the new institutions of the Nordic welfare states.
Nina Christensen and Charlotte Appel explore the reading cultures of Danish children from around 1750 until today. They consider specific children’s experiences, influential adults, and examples of Nordic children’s literature and translations in their historical contexts.
