Picturebooks address a broad readership across age and other forms of diversity. Our research shows that engaging with picturebooks that challenge readers cognitively, affectively and/or aesthetically can support learning and promote critical reflection.
Our current project on inclusive education through challenging picturebooks convenes researchers from across Scandinavia, Europe, and Asia. We explore the opportunities for social inclusion and cultural literacy through children’s literature.
This research group belongs to the Faculty of Education and International Studies.
