Learning Outcomes
In the last decades, foreign theoretical approaches persist in connecting the study of literature, and the study of children's literature, with “gender”. These contemporary theoretical opinions and perceptions are analytically presented in this lesson, whilst continuously examining their adaptation on works of Greek children's literature, novels and fables. The student, via well-known literary texts which are pointed out to him/her, can easily acquaint him/herself with the theory and practice of this relatively new dimension in the criticism of children's literature. Specifically, the student must understand that gender differences are socially constructed. This is reflected very well within the literary texts. More specifically are analyzed the stereotypes for both female and male gender in folk and fairy tales and their newer versions (aimed at the reversal of outdated gender ideology), in elementary school textbooks, in picture books, in novels for children and young adults.
