Summary
Internationalism in Children's Series investigates 'internationalism' through various cultural, historical and theoretical lenses in series created for a child readership. Using the familiarity of the series character and format to form a bridge to the wider world, authors from the nineteenth century to contemporary times have expanded the definition of internationalism. This volume examines these definitions as they vary from series to series and even book to book in a rapidly changing, ever-shrinking world. Series with a specific international focus, such as The Twins of the World series that take an occasional trip outside of their home country, such as the various Stratemeyer Syndicate series, as well as those which are 'accidentally' international, such as Enid Blyton's various series, all contribute to a child's understanding of global integration. From imperialism to transnationalism, from Tom Swift to Harry Potter, this book addresses the unique ability of series to introduce children to the world
