Landscape and environment in historic and contemporary children’s literature.
Join Dr Sinéad Moriarty and MPhil students in Children’s Literature at Trinity College Dublin for a fascinating discussion on the role of landscape and environment within the world of historical and contemporary children’s writing and illustration. Whether these landscapes are green spaces, sacred spaces, road and pathways, or fantastical environments, they have an integral role and relationship to character, plot and setting.
Sinéad is a Teaching Fellow in Children’s Literature at TCD. Her work focuses on representations of wilderness, landscape, and environment in children’s literature. Her first monograph Antarctica in British Children’s Literature was published in 2020.
In association with the MPhil in Children’s Literature, School of English, Trinity College Dublin.
