Voices of the Other by Roderick McGillis

Book Description

This book offers a variety of approaches to children's literature from a postcolonial perspective that includes discussions of cultural appropriation, race theory, pedagogy as a colonialist activity, and multiculturalism. The eighteen essays divide into three sections: Theory, Colonialism, and Postcolonialism. The first section sets the theoretical framework for postcolonial studies; essays here deal with issues of "otherness" and cultural difference, as well as the colonialist implications of pedagogic practice. These essays confront our relationships with the child and childhood as sites for the exertion of our authority and control. The second section presents discussions of the colonialist mindset in children's and young-adult texts from the turn of the century. Here, works by writers of animal stories in Canada, the U.S., and Britain; works of early Australian colonialist literature; and Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess come under the scrutiny of our postmodern reading practices. Section Three deals directly with contemporary texts for children that manifest both a postcolonial and a neo-colonial content, and includes studies of children's literature from Canada, Australia, Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States.

Books By Author Roderick McGillis

At the Back of the North Wind by Roderick McGillis At the Back of the North Wind, Paperback (October 2011)

This is the only edition of George MacDonald’s influential novel for children to include an introduction, annotation, and extra historical materials.

He Was Some Kind of a Man by Roderick McGillis He Was Some Kind of a Man, Paperback (May 2009)

Explores the construction and representation of masculinity in low-budget western movies made from the 1930s to the early 1950s. This book argues that the masculinity offered by these films is less one-dimensional than it is plural, perhaps contrary to expectations. It is of interest to scholars in film studies and gender studies.
