Taboos, Trends and Debates in Contemporary Scandinavian Children’s and Young Adult Literature

Start: Jan 27, 2014 5:15:00 PM
End: Jan 27, 2014 7:30:00 PM

Children’s literature is a delicate thing. Many publishing houses will avoid certain themes, and some publications do generate heated debates. One such recent debate in Sweden dealt with the figure of Lilla Hjärtat (the little heart) in the film and picture-book by Stina Wirsén (2012). In newspapers and in academic debates the question was raised whether The Little Heart should be considered a racist figure? In Denmark another picture-book, Oskar K. and Dorte Karrebæk’s Lejren (The Camp, 2011), attracted attention for its gruesome depiction of children in what resembles a concentration camp run by adults. Is this really a book for children? The lecture will address such taboos, trends and debates in contemporary Scandinavian children’s and Young Adult literature.

Il fantastico femminile: una questione di genere

Start: Jan 29, 2014 6:00:00 PM

Le studiose che nell’ultimo decennio si sono interrogate sull’esistenza di un canone femminile nella narrativa fantastica del Novecento ne hanno individuato i presupposti teorici e le soluzioni espressive in un rovesciamento del paradigma freudiano dell’Unheimliche: per cui all’angoscia suscitata dall’evento o dall’incontro perturbante subentrerebbe la relazione empatica con l’altro da sé, nelle sue molteplici forme di demonio, spettro, mostro o rapimento onirico.

Blair, Labour and Palestine: Conflicting Views on Middle East Peace After 9/11

Start: Jan 30, 2014 6:15:00 PM

Toby Green book
This lecture will explore the contrasting ways policy makers in the West have linked the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the challenge posed by violent strains of Islamist extremism. This was an issue that divided Tony Blair from much of his party when in office, and the contrasting world views that underpin this divide continue impact policy making in the Middle East. It is an issue that has on-going implications for Israel’s relations with the Western world.
