Introducing Positioning Pooh

I am so excited that a piece I wrote recently for the ChLA International Committee on my recent publication, Positioning Pooh, is now live on their site!

Here’s a quick sneak preview…

“When I first saw the CFP in a ChLA newsletter in 2016 for someone to pull together a Winnie-the-Pooh centennial collection, it was a temptation I couldn’t resist. As an Anglo-Indian-Caribbean child, I spent half my childhood in a UK still nostalgic for a golden past and half in a US steeped in Disney culture. Therefore, Winnie-the-Pooh in all of his many guises had been a central figure in my childhood and the first one that popped into my head when I thought about topics for my PhD. At the time the CFP came out, my own children were just at the age of wanting to watch and re-watch the Disney film, and a year later, we would visit family living in Ashdown Forest and take a walk across Pooh Sticks Bridge.”
