Streszczenie w języku angielskim:
What is a children’s archive and how do we listen to the voices in it? With the continued growth of the field of children’s literature, special collections of archival material have not only developed but received national and even international recognition. The International Youth Library, Seven Stories: The National Centre for Children’s Books, and the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection are just a few. However, these collections tend to focus more on original materials by authors and illustrators, only including the voices of children through the materials sent by young readers in the form of fan mail, thank you letters, or school projects. How do we disentangle the child voice from the adult narratives that shape and give structure to these collections? In this talk, I explore the methodological possibilities of a participatory lens for recovering historical children’s voices. I consider the ethical implications and entangled nature of author-child-researcher, drawing on examples from special collections of children’s literature as well as smaller community-based collections that contain children’s original materials. In doing so, I draw out the meaning of the children’s archive and explain how its unique structure requires equally unique methodological practices.
