This channel was inspired by a class I am taking called Critical Multicultural Analysis of Children’s Literature. Multicultural perspectives in children’s literature are often absent, or when when they are present, they are often inaccurate or problematic in some way. In my mind we should move beyond the limited definition of multicultural children’s literature as literature by an/or about people of color. We can define multicultural as that which has to do with race, class, gender, ability, sexual orientation, and many other aspects of our being.

It is my hope that we can harness the power of the internet and social media to 1) provide a forum for underrepresented folks to share texts that promote a more accurate, thoughtful narrative of their life experiences and 2) for readers to expand their understanding of their own social identities, as well as the social identities of others.

To do this, I am asking for folks (my target audience for the class is children and adolescents, but ANYONE can participate) to make videos in which they discuss texts that have realistically and accurately portrayed their own underrepresented perspective or life experience.

If you would like to participate, please e-mail me at briank.pahl@gmail.com.
