2011 (English)In: Beyond Pippi Longstocking: intermedial and international aspects of Astrid Lindgren’s works / [ed] Astrid Surmatz, Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer, London: Routledge , 2011, 173-183 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Astrid Lindgren and Anna Riwkin-Brick’s series of photographic picturebooks about children from different countries aimed to promote tolerance and international understanding through children’s literature. They represent a very speciﬁc tendency within the modernist turn in Nordic children’s literature and furthermore demonstrate how children and childhood are depicted and constructed not only in this speciﬁc part of Astrid Lindgren’s production but also in Nordic children’s literature in general. In this artictle, I will analyze the use of photographic images in picturebooks as a part of an aesthetic and ideological context in the decades following the Second World War.
