Dillon, J. (2019). ‘Exploring Female Identity in Carroll’s Wonderland and Barrie’s the Neverland’ in GLARE (Exploring Gender in Children’s Literature from a Cognitive Corpus Stylistic Perspective) Project funded by the European Commission within Marie Sklodowska- Curie Actions, University of Birmingham.

Jade was invited to write an online article for the GLARE project (Exploring Gender in Children’s Literature from a Cognitive Corpus Stylistic Perspective) which is funded by the European Commission within the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions. This is a highly reputable project run by Professor Michaela Mahlberg (the principal investigator) and Anna Cermakova (the project fellow). This publication is important because it focuses on the diverse and problematic body symbolism that are presented to readers in Lewis Carroll’s Alice books and Peter Pan and Wendy by J. M. Barrie. She interprets Carroll’s Alice and her growing and getting small within the context of the Victorian female ideal of a petite woman. She also examines the contrasting female characters in Peter Pan and Wendy: Wendy, the kind motherly figure, and mermaids, the playful, seductive and dangerous other worldly females.
