Malmö university perspectives – gender, environment, migration and ethnicity
The course engages with critical perspectives on gender, migration, ethnicity and durable development through choice of reading matter as well as in the instruction of method and theory. Children’s literature in a global perspective promotes the idea of world citizenship through education; the course highlights diversity, heterogeneity and different traditions, yet advocates the universal. Humankind’s relationship to the non-human is also reviewed, an important step towards ecological awareness and environment-sensitivity needed in the making of a durable future. Finally, the concept of “generation” is brought to bear on issues of power and citizenship in children’s literature.
