Little Red Riding Hood

What sort of mother sends her daughter out into a forest where there are wolves?

And what does Granny do all day in her cottage? (Little) Red Riding Hood is not perhaps the innocent story of girlhood morality it might seem; Nick Swarbrick brings together the folklore of the forest and his own interest in wolves to help get through the thickets of this multi-layered story of betrayal, survival and why sneaky is Best.

This is a collaborative event with Oxford Brookes University.

Nick Swarbrick is a Principal Lecturer in the School of Education, lecturing on subjects as diverse as children’s spirituality and outdoor play. His research looks at picture books as a lens on contemporary issues: he has recently published a short study on fatherhood in the works of Antony Browne and Jill Murphy, with his colleague Mat Tobin.
