In this narrative collage of ancient and contemporary storytelling, modern theory, and personal reflection, Ian William Sewall seeks to infuse western pedagogy with a folkloral teaching voice. Through multilayered conversations with individuals and groups—traditional storytellers, teachers, children—he examines the dynamic nature of oral culture, its embodied nature, its connection to place, and its use of metaphor, laughter, ethnicity, and intergenerational conversation to create unique kinds of interactions and learning. Offering storytelling as an “ancestral template” of good teaching, Sewall demonstrates how teachers can use the folkoral voice to inform and transform classroom practice.

Ein neuer Blick auf alte Freunde Erstaunliche Dinge geschehen im Wald: Bäume, die miteinander kommunizieren.

Und wir betreten eine völlig neue Welt ...

Power Voice and Subjectivity in Literature for Young Readers

This book considers one of the most controversial aspects of children’s and young adult literature: its use as an instrument of power. Children in contemporary Western society are oppressed and powerless, yet they are allowed, in fiction written by adults for the enlightenment and enjoyment of children, to become strong, brave, rich, powerful, and independent -- on certain conditions and for a limited time. Though the best children’s literature offers readers the potential to challenge the authority of adults, many authors use artistic means such as the narrative voice and the subject position to manipulate the child reader. Looking at key works from the eighteenth century to the present, Nikolajeva explores topics such as genre, gender, crossvocalization, species, and picturebook images. Contemporary power theories including social and cultural studies, carnival theory, feminism, postcolonial and queer studies, and narratology are also considered, in order to demonstrate how a balance is maintained between the two opposite inherent goals of children’s literature: to empower and to educate the child.
