Memory: (Re)imagining the Past Through Children′s Literature

Chapter
Part of the New Frontiers of Educational Research book series (NFER)

Abstract

There has been a renewal of interest in memory studies in recent years, particularly in the Western world. This chapter considers aspects of personal memory followed by the concept of cultural memory. It then examines how the Australian cultural memory of the Anzac Legend is represented in a number of recent picture books.
