Deakin University

This course provides students with advanced skills in analysing literary works in Children's Literature. It hones students' ability to research, analyse and contextualise issues based on historical, political, cultural and social circumstances in literature for children and young adults. The Graduate Diploma of Children's Literature aims to provide students with specialist knowledge and skills in the field of children's literature. It is designed so that students become familiar with a broad range of texts, taking account of variations of genre, the historical and cultural contexts in which children's texts are produced, and the ideological frameworks in which they are located. The course will provide an introduction to contemporary theoretical approaches to the study of children's texts, so beyond the span of the course, students will be equipped to read texts in a more informed and theoretically grounded manner
