the ethical and religious dimensions of children's literature

This seminar will focus on the ways in which religious and ethical concerns shape children’s education and entertainment. It will cover not only how authors and illustrators imbue their work with mythic and moral significance, but also how arguably religious elements such as supernatural characters inflect secular literature and comic books.
