LIT 504 - Literature, Art, & Media: Childhood

Catalog Year 2013-2014

This course will explore children’s literature, art, and other media that speak to young students about the realities structuring their social lives. A literary, critical and aesthetic approach to literature, art, and media, informed by cultural studies, will serve as the theoretical framework for inquiry. In a classroom atmosphere that promotes dialogue, candidates will think about how students and teachers together can see how texts work to construct their world, their cultures and their identities in ideological ways and how texts can be used as social tools for reconstructing identities, cultures and world views.

PREREQ: Graduate standing.
