"Jaida," a novel : the queer possibilities of "Jaida," an exegesis Forrester, Kathleen


This thesis is a hybrid thesis; that is, a combination of a creative work (the novel, "Jaida") and an academic exegesis of the various theoretical underpinnings that informed the writing of this middle grade novel. In the following exegesis, I detail and reflect upon some of the critical thought processes that provided a backdrop to the creation of the creative work, and highlight certain themes from the primary text in relation to contemporary research in the fields of queer theory and children’s literature.
