Today’s children achieve literacy in the context of a complex, multimodal world. But reading is also a grounded, physical activity, and they must come to terms with their own world as part of understanding the universes created by other minds. This talk will present considerations of literacy as it has changed – and not changed – over the past fifty years, drawing on the example of a single reader and her elaborate textual world.

This talk is part of the Centre for Research in Children's Literature at Cambridge series.
