Description

Electronic media and globalization notwithstanding, the picture book industry in independent Slovenia is flourishing, with motifs of this small nation’s cultural heritage continuing to play a significant role in promulgating a sense of national identity in books for children, while often playing with or subverting that identity in illustrated hybrid or crossover literature, graphic novels and comics.  This presentation will explore a number of traditional motifs and the specific forms they have taken in recent literature

Feel free to bring your lunch to this lunchtime talk.  Free and open to the public.
