Books Info:

Seriality and Texts for Young People free pdf Seriality and Texts for Young People is a collection of thirteen original, scholarly essays about series and serial texts directed to children and youth. Each begins from the premise that a basic principle of seriality is repetition and explores what that means for a range of primary texts, including popular narrative series for children, comics, magazines, TV series, and digital texts. Contributors featured include internationally-recognised scholars such as Perry Nodelman, Margaret Mackey and Laurie Langbauer, and the essays cover texts such as the Harry Potter novels, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Anne of Green Gables. The introduction provides a framework for the detailed explorations, reviewing some of the most important contemporary theories of repetition, pointing to some key criticism on series, and speculating on the significance of the series form for the field of young people's texts.
