Badger Talks LIVE: Why Diversity in Children's Books Matters to Us All
Dr. Dipesh Navsaria, Associate Professor of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Clinical Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Studies
Tuesday, October 11, 2022
Diverse themes, text, and illustrations matter deeply in children’s books, and go well beyond simply allowing those from historically marginalized groups to “see themselves”. This talk explores these concepts, why they matter to those advising and selecting books that adults may choose to share with young children, and how it ultimately matters to us all as a society. This talk is being presented in partnership with the 2022 Wisconsin Science Festival.
