Children’s Books: For Fun And/or Politics

3 PM, Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Hamilton Library Room 401

Light refreshments will be served.

Children’s books are often thought to be used mostly for educational purposes – that is, to teach lessons to young children in an interesting and engaging way. While this may certainly be true, children’s books also greatly reflect culture, including languages, history or tradition, and political ideologies. The fourth colloquium of the Treasures at UH Hamilton Library introduces  Asia Collection’s unique – Children’s Book Collection including North Korean children’s picture books. They show different aspects of North Korean culture as depicted for young children to understand and absorb. Jude Yang, Korean Studies Librarian, will coordinate this colloquium in collaboration with other Asia Collection Department librarians.
