Summary

This panel, comprised of an international team of scholars, will address children’s information poverty from three perspectives: 1) information poverty faced by populations who do not see themselves reflected within mainstream picture books; 2) information poverty faced by immigrant children who do not have access to appropriate learning materials; and 3) adults’ cultural information poverty around the meaning of young people’s encounters with art and culture as part of their everyday life experience.
