Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan and are among a collection of children’s stories that have been given a trigger warning for ‘white supremacy’.

York St John University warned students the stories may contain ‘colonialist narratives’, with vocabulary and illustrations which may appear ‘racist’.

Bosses put the disclaimer on the website of the Rees-Williams Collection of Children’s Literature, which contains over 3000 historical volumes.

Among these are Peter and Wendy by JM Barrie, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
