HUMA 220 Critiquing Children’s Culture


This course examines varied spheres of children’s culture while introducing students to the terms, analytical techniques, and interpretive strategies commonly employed in Cultural Studies. Emphasis is on interdisciplinary approaches to exploring how children’s cultural processes and artifacts are produced, shaped, distributed, consumed and responded to in diverse ways. Through discussion, research and writing, class members investigate dimensions of children’s culture, learning to understand them in their broader social, aesthetic, ethical, and political contexts. Topics studied include children’s literature, animated films, teen literature, toys, public schooling, children’s games and new media.
