The approach of diversity through Greek modern literature books for children: on the way to the critical literacy (Master thesis)

Καπούτση, Σύρμω/ Kapoutsi, Syrmo

The purpose of the present thesis is to demonstrate the subversive morphological features of postmodern writing in selected texts of contemporary Greek literature for children and to investigate their connection to the development of a positive attitude towards diversity in the context of critical literacy. Initially, theoretical issues associated with this thesis are examined, such as the role of literature in children's socialization, critical literacy, postmodern fiction and its features, τhe role of the reader. Then the methodological tool of qualitative content analysis, used for the realization of this study, is presented. The following is the analysis of the investigated material, which includes the finding and the analysis of the following features of postmodern fiction: metafiction, intertextuality, parody, magic realism, the playful dimension, the specific role of language, mixing of genres, the participating reader. The conclusion which emerges is that, although with little presence in the Greek literary production, contemporary books, expressing, in greater or lesser degree, a postmodern perspective, contribute to the development of a detached from the dominant ideology, critical look for the world, operate reversibly to the stereotypes associated with otherness, and thereby assist in a more positive approach of diversity
