  • Editorial
    • Abstract: with the foundation of ibby, the International Youth Library, and Bookbird, Jella Lepman concretized the idea put forth by French critic Paul Hazard that children's literature can portray both what makes every culture unique and what is universal: our "humanity." In consequence, by reading books in other languages and from culture rather than our own, we can gain an understanding of other cultures, as well as realize our common humanity, and this can bring us closer to each other. Ultimately, reading is a peace project—hence IBBY's stated mission "to promote international understanding through children's books" (mission statement, IBBY homepage).As editor of Bookbird, I naturally see it as my ambition to promote a ...

  • Translation and Transmedia in Children's Literature
    • Abstract: When Susan Bassnett and André Lefevere announced "the translation turn in cultural studies" in 1998, they prognosticated a major paradigm shift of the postmillennial era throughout which translation would provide a potent metaphor and efficient analytical framework to deal with socio-political transformations and upheavals like globalization, the post-9/11 crisis of multiculturalism, or migration—all concomitant with discursive conflicts necessitating cross-cultural negotiations. Preoccupied with the protection of the most endangered, vulnerable subjects of the populace, the interdisciplinary research of children's literatures and cultures has gained a considerable impetus from translation studies' strategies ...

  • Translated into British: European Children's Literature, (In)difference
           and Écart in the Age of Brexit
    • Abstract: Three weeks before what has come to be known as the "Brexit" vote, Julia Eccleshare, possibly the most influential children's book reviewer in the United Kingdom, wrote for the Guardian an article on "the best children's books to help children feel connected to Europe." The United Kingdom aside, none of them was actually from a European country, and none was in translation. As if seized by an afterthought, Eccleshare added, "Of course, another option is to read European books in translation. From Tintin to Asterix…"That such an article, so close to the Brexit referendum, should have been published, let alone written, testifies to the British obliviousness to the fact that it is simply not normal for a country in ...

  • Grammars of New Media: Interactive Trans-Sensory Storytelling and Empathic
           Reading Praxis in Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral's Chopsticks
    • Abstract: Permitting children to read online "deprive[s] them of an elevating and enlightening experience that will enlarge them as people." So argues Annie Murphy Paul in a 2013 Time Ideas article that seeks to defend the "deep reading" of print literature against what she calls the "superficial reading we do on the Web." Readers of books are more apt to "be better able to understand other people, empathize with them, and view the world from their perspective," Paul suggests. Citing a 2010 study by Raymond Mar and Keith Oatley, Paul extends this argument about readers explicitly to children: "the more stories they had read to them, the keener the 'theory of mind,' or mental model of other people's intentions." We all know ... Read More

  • "O Loire, what a fine bridge!": Foreignizing Domestications and
           Illustrating Bridges in James Joyce's The Cat and the Devil and Its French
           Translations
    • Abstract: The Cat and the Devil (1936), a story James Joyce wrote originally as a letter to his grandson Stephen, became a children's classic once it was made into a picturebook in 1964. Although the story is predominantly written in English, it also contains French and Italian elements: the devil speaks French to the townspeople for a page (fifty-one words), and the original letter Joyce wrote is signed off as "Nonno," which is Italian for "grandfather." The cumulative effect of these language choices is a polylingualism expressive of the international nature of modernism. Although the story has been translated into thirteen languages, no scholarly work has been done on issues related to its translation. Only two years ... Read More

  • Picturebooks in a Minority Language Setting: Intra-Cultural
           Transformations
    • Abstract: Writing, translation, and publishing practices often follow more complex patterns than the "the full transposition of one (monolingual) source code into another (monolingual) target code" (Meylaerts 5). This is particularly true in the case of translators and writers who originate from countries or regions where two or more languages interact within one cultural system. In such areas, the publishing process itself may not be monolingual—since multilingual authors move fluidly between multiple tongues, frequently disregarding boundaries between different languages. Publishing houses may themselves work in multiple languages. In the case of minority-language publishers, a work may also be published in multiple forms ... Read More

  • Omne Vetus Novum Est Iterum: The Decline and Rise of Latin Translation in
           Children's Literature
    • Abstract: When I mentioned to colleagues that I was working on a project involving Latin translation and children's literature, most assumed it was regarding the translation of classical and medieval works into English for contemporary children—and expressed surprise (even confusion) when they were told otherwise. The other frequent reaction I received while carrying Latin translations of The Cat in the Hat and Winnie-the-Pooh in public was amusement—most often stemming from the odd visual juxtaposition of the popular field of children's literature with the intellectually elite subject of Latin.In fact, there is a rich history over the past 150 years of translating modern children's literature into Latin, an odd reversal of ...

  • Children's Literature in "Our Language"
    • Abstract: Most of the Finnish-Swedish border runs through the Bothnian Sea. Between Haaparanta on the Swedish side and Tornio on the Finnish side, the border continues its watery path upstream along the Torne River until it reaches Kengis, from whence the tributary Kassanniska marks the national boundary. The northern rivers freeze in the winter, enabling border crossings at any point along the 555.5 km stretch. This border came into existence in 1809, when Sweden was forced to cede land to Russia. From 1809 to 1917, Finland was a Duchy of Russia. As Finland celebrates one hundred years of Independence, this letter focuses its attention on the people of the Finnish-Swedish borderlands—the Tornedalinger (literally, "people of ... Read More

  • I Am a Translator, a Transmitter of Culture
    • Abstract: Some time ago, an article in an Italian newspaper dealing with translation started affirming that "in the rank of solitary professions … translators share the first place with lighthouse keepers." It is true. Someone who translates stays for hours in front of a PC, writing and thinking in apparent loneliness; however, while lighthouse keepers have only the wide blue sea in front of their eyes, translators have plenty of characters that fill their rooms and drag them into a myriad of different situations and countries.Up until now, my characters have taken me to New York, North Carolina, Poland, Austria, and Germany; to the Dutch dunes; to Limburg; and even onto the moon! I wound up in a boxer-ring, on top of a ... Read More

  • ViVa Vostok: Literature for Children and Young Adults from Central and
           Eastern Europe in the German-Speaking Area
    • Abstract: The current literature for children and young adults from Central and Eastern European countries is little known in German-speaking regions. It is the aim of the funding program ViVaVostok to change this. Since 2012, it has been helping children's book authors from Central and Eastern European countries to present their work in German-speaking areas. It offers financial support to organizers who introduce their audience to literature from Central and Eastern Europe. ViVaVostok invites young readers to discover new worlds, to meet foreign authors and illustrators in person, and to be enchanted by as yet little known literature. Last but not least, the events and information offered are supposed to encourage the ... Read More

  • Translating Children's Literature by Gillian Lathey (review)
    • Abstract: The translation of children's literature is a field of growing complexity and is of interest to anyone working with books or with children, especially researchers and students of children's literature or cultural studies, editors, and publishing houses. The more this field of international importance comes into the foreground, the more urgent the specific questions concerning translation of books for children seem to appear. Gillian Lathey, a renowned scholar in the field of translation of children's literature, recognized these challenges and addressed the most relevant in her book Translating Children's Literature.Lathey's experience as a judge of the Marsh Award for Children's Literature in Translation and as ...

  • Shojo Manga: Text-Bild-Verhältnisse und Narrationsstrategien im
           japanischen und deutschen Manga für Mädchen by Kristin Eckstein (review)
           
    • Abstract: In Germany, Manga have carved themselves a niche in the comic culture. The new millennium saw the development of a new genre—the German Shōjo Manga for adolescent girls and young women—inspired by the formal aesthetics of Japanese comics, featuring complex coming-of-age stories of female protagonists in dystopian or real-life German settings, and mostly drawn by female artists.Kristin Eckstein gives an overview of research in Japanese and Western comic and literary studies—which largely ignore Manga, and especially Shōjo Manga, even though they have long established themselves as trendy media of pop culture. The few studies on Shōjo Manga focus mainly on socio-cultural, pedagogical, historical, or art-historical ... Read More

As a prominent scholar of children's literature in China, Fang gives the reader an analytical view on the development of children's literature in China over the past thirty years. The current challenges that children's writers and publishers are facing are also made clear as his criticism unfolds.The book has two sections. The fourteen articles in the first section cover a wide range of subject matter—such as Fang's criticism of the lack of truthful representations of different childhoods, particularly ... Read More
