The Dangers of Reading Globally, Kathy G. Short , single work criticism

'This article is based on a keynote delivered at the 36th IBBY International Congress in Athens, Greece, on August 31, 2018. IBBY members are committed to the potentials offered by global literature for opening minds to multiple ways of living in the world and creating intercultural understanding. Asking readers to read outside their comfort zones, however, can instead hold danger and perpetuate stereotypes and misunderstandings. This article proposes that we can address these dangers through acting on our social responsibilities as bookmakers, readers, and educators to balance individual voice with group responsibility and to determine if our actions could cause harm to readers’ understandings of a culture.' (Publication abstract)

(p. 1-11)
Fish Is People, Perry Nodelman , single work criticism
'This article is based on the keynote address Perry Nodelman presented at the IBBY International Congress in Athens in August 2018. Most picturebooks about fish turn them into surrogates for human readers. After considering why and how they do so, Nodelman explores how seeing fish as people might affect young readers’ understanding of fish as fish.' (Publication abstract)
(p. 12-21)
International and Local Relief Organizations and the Promotion of Children’s and Young Adult Refugee Narratives, Vassiliki Vassiloudi , single work criticism

'This article looks into refugee narratives produced or endorsed and promoted as children’s reading matter by international refugee relief organizations. The analysis accounts for their emergence as a separate genre with recurrent features, while questioning the assumptions that underlie their production and the aims they serve.' (Publication abstract)
