Whitewashing: the disappearance of race and ethnicity from YA covers | Inside A Dog

Whitewashing: the disappearance of race and ethnicity from YA covers | Inside A Dog | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"This is my final week on Inside a Dog, and I wanted to kick it off by talking about something that I feel strongly about – the ‘whitewashing’ of covers of books in YA fiction. What exactly is this, you might ask? ‘Whitewashing’, in this context, describes what happens when the diversity contained within a story disappears from the cover of the book. So, for example, a book about a black-haired, black-skinned girl features a pale-skinned blonde on the cover. Or, a book about a brown-skinned boy features a pale-skinned boy on the cover. Or a book about an olive-skinned girl – well, you get the picture. "

Taking Aboriginal Fiction to new heights: A conversation with Richard Van Camp | rabble.ca | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Richard Van Camp is an acclaimed Canadian author, a proud member of Dogrib (Tlicho) Nation from Fort Smith, NWT and all around pretty charming fellow. We decided to sit down with Richard and ask him, among many things, what he thinks defines the Aboriginal Fiction genre and the contributions he has made to it, if writing degrees are really helpful to aspiring writers and what the Idle No More movement means for Indigenous sovereignty and Canadian identity.
