As part of the PhD, I intend to analyse a number of fiction and non-fiction books in English for children and adults, in order to understand how care-characters* are portrayed.

Texts serve as a way to identify with characters – think of texts as mirrors and windows – we look in a mirror to see our reflection. Through the closed window we see only images. When we are exposed to people through literature, they are no longer as other – the window has been opened.

I want to understand whether and, if so, in what ways, we see care-characters reflected in literature.
