About this Unit
In 2015 this unit replaced by 102205 - Children's and Young Adult Fiction. This unit explores a wide range of literary texts created for children, from folktales, fairytales and myths to contemporary examples. It focuses on the relationship between children’s texts, society and culture. The unit will examine a variety of genres and themes, for example, the experience of childhood as constructed by adult authors of children’s texts; post-colonial children’s literature; the emergence and development of distinctly Australian children’s texts; the development of “young adult” literature; the impact of new technologies on children’s literature; and role of art in children’s literature.
