Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professor of children’s literature Kimberley Reynolds considers how children’s literature has helped to shape and direct ideas about culture, society and childhood.  She provides an overview of the history of children’s literature from Beatrix Potter and Roald Dahl to Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter, and asks what the future holds. Reynolds is professor of children’s literature in the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics at Newcastle University.
