Research title: Exploring Children’s Responses to and Engagement with Feminist Biographical Illustrated Books

Research Summary

My PhD research explores children's responses to and engagement with collective biographies that present accounts of women's lives and achievements throughout history. Taking a participatory approach, I draw upon creative methodologies to explore children's engagement with the literature. The  project promises high potential significance amongst scholars, teachers, youth workers, related practitioners and parents/carers looking to explore meaningful pedagogical tools to address gender-related topics with young people.
