Challenging the Pluralism of Our Past: Presentism and the Selective Tradition in Historical Fiction Written for Young People.
Power, Chandra L.
Research in the Teaching of English, v37 n4 p425-66 May 2003
Examines the concept of presentism as it relates to historical fiction written for young people. Argues that in order to understand more fully the complexities of any era, one must resist the commonsense acceptance of a hegemonic interpretation of the past and investigate the possibilities of the multiple beliefs, values, and awarenesses comprising the past.
