The first systematic research on early modern European popular children's literature
Although popular print and children's literature have both received attention by historians, there is a lack of systematic research on the crossover between these two forms of cultural production. The EU-funded CaTPoP project offers the first methodological examination of European popular children's print between 1700 and 1900. The project aims to highlight the extent to which popular print reached young people and to give a full account of the different forms that were produced with children as a target audience. By using a transnational approach tracing geographical and temporal continuities and fractures, CaTPoP aspires to assess whether a shared print culture existed for children across Europe during that period.
