The Poetic City A Literary Field for Multicultural Studies Depictions: Greece as a Case Study

  •  Triantafyllos Kotopoulos    


This paper focuses on the study of the urban space as a multiculturalism field in illustrated children’s books that were in circulation in Greece after 2000. We examined the model of the immigrant and the “different”, the “other”, inside the fictional, literary city as an eminent symbol that emerges from socio-political circumstances and its various, selective, fragmentary and conditioned by the author’s point of veiw representations. Also we investigated the extent to which iconographic and textual representations of the “other” in urban space constitute either a “neutral” and “objective” imprinting of social reality, or serve towards reproducing sovereign ideologies.
