The Politics of “Looking Like” in the Picturebooks of Alan Say

Cross-culturally adopted children are often forced to address the issue of not “looking like” their birth parents as though it signals a lack of community. A challenge for the authors of children’s books is addressing the complex emotions that arise from adoption. Dr. Lydia Kokkola of the Luleå University of Technology in Sweden addresses this topic in this entertaining and informative Lunch & Learn.
