Alternative Depictions of femininity in modern greek and translated books of preschool and primary school age of the last twenty years (Bachelor thesis)

Κοντοβά, Μαρία/ Kontova, Maria

The present dissertation investigates the alternative depictions of femininity depicted in contemporary picture books that are addressed to pre-school and primary school readers. Firstly, we present the theoretical background of our work, which is structured around the concepts of children's literature, the role of ideology in children's literature and finally the concept of gender and in particular the gender identities and the changes brought to them by the evolution of the feminist movement. In the research part of the dissertation we analyze selected Greek and translated picture books that were published over the last twenty years and that include at least one female character in a leading role. The analysis of the books is based on the plot and the end of the story, the characters, the language used and especially its ideological charge, the role of the narrator and the point of view of the narrative, and finally their images and the relationship they develop with the accompanying texts.
