Messages from the inside? : Multiculturalism in contemporary Australian children's literature
Pearce, Sharyn M. (2003) Messages from the inside? : Multiculturalism in contemporary Australian children's literature. The Lion and the Unicorn, 27(2), pp. 235-250.
It remains to be seen whether the events toward the end of 2001 in Australia and elsewhere will produce a triumphant counterdiscourse of assimilation and/or exclusion, and whether tolerant pluralism of the multicultural society, so comparatively recently nd arduously asserted, is exposed as fragile and illusory. A children's literature reflecting a society intent upon renovating the fading picture of a homogenous Australia really would be a step backward.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
