Online Workshop 

(3 PDPs) In this series of discussions, we’ll look at key issues around talking animals in children’s literature. Participants will consider the debate that talking animals confuse children (making it harder for them to distinguish between what’s real and what’s fantastic), address the ways in which talking animals slip into problematic stereotypes and racism, and discuss humanized animals and the complications of the human-animal relationships in environmental justice. Reading materials will be sent electronically in advance of each meeting. Space is limited.
