Money: Child Poverty, the Culture of Consumption, and Entrepreneurship in Literature and Culture for Children and Young Adults from the 1930s to Today
November 26, 2019 – 15:00 – 18:00
Financial issues dictate the conditions of all lives regardless of world view or assets, and the topic is frequently addressed in Nordic children’s and young adult literature.
What role do financial issues play in children’s and young adult literature before, during and after the heyday of the Swedish welfare state? How is children’s and young adults’ relationship to money portrayed?
These questions will be discussed on November 26 at the Swedish Institute for Children's Books. Please note: the lectures will be held in Swedish.
