Reinventing Humanity: postmodern conditions in Terry Pratchett's corpus of children's fiction


My research aims to trace and explore survival and the formulation of child heroes in Terry Pratchett’s corpus of children’s fiction. The corpus comprises fourteen books and my textual analyses will draw on relevant theory associated with children’s literature, fantasy, folklore, postmodernism and carnival. Hypothesising that Pratchett’s children’s fiction functions – for both its child characters and its child readers - as a vehicle for understanding the world and surviving in it, the research will aim to address a gap in current academic attention paid to Pratchett’s works for children.
