Abstract

This paper analyses two American picture books about 9/11 to examine how children are instructed to perform as 'good citizens' since 9/11. An exploration of the complicated ways multiculturalism emerges in these books suggests that unity (and Whiteness) is privileged in these texts despite their proclaimed belief in harmony and diversity.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
