Section Information for Spring 2013

In this community, we will examine the landscape of children's media from a critical media and cultural studies perspective. Through the communication circuit of production, text, audience we will explore the complexities of children's media, introducing students to the major debates surrounding the role of media in the lives and development of children. We will look at television shows, films, video, books, video games, and other media aimed at children, paying special attention to issues of gender, class, race, political economy, and globalization. This course will require students to think critically and step outside their comfort zones.
