"Children's Literature, Text and Canon: Studies in the Sociology of Knowledge": The project seeks to combine a study of the history and poetics of children's literature with the theory and sociology of knowledge.
Viewing children's literature as a medium in which two powerful ideological positions intersect: our ideas about childhood and about literature, the project analyses interferences between the development of the mainstream literary canon, the text or poetics of children's literature and the knowledge produced about these texts in different theoretical paradigms and cultural practices, such as children's literature studies and library communication.
