The New Fringe Dwellers: the problem of ethnicity in recent Australian children's picture books

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Australian children's books since the 19705 have usually presented the ethnicity of non-Anglo protagonists as a condition that sets them apart, making them direct their energies towards adapting to a strange land. This paper examines whether writers of recent Australian picture books have been able to move ethnic groups beyond the immigration experience in literature so that the ethnicity ofnon-Anglo characters is no longer the focus
