Towards Active Citizens : Landscape, Nationalism and Politics in 20th Century British and Australian Children's Literature.

By Stephen Bigger and Robyn Cox


This paper compares and contrasts different approaches to the landscape as heritage as expressed by selected writers for children. This paper contrasts some English attitudes and values in writers in the 20th century, selected for their particular concern for landscape issues and certainly not homogenous. This is contrasted with the political \ud sensitivities brought about by colonialism in Australia, in particular about portrayal of Aborigines and use of their stories in publications for children, stories which focus on their intimate relationship with their heritage landscape. Stories encourage children to be environmental \ud activists and hold the promise of inclusion and social equity
