グローバル教養科目(Reading Children, Reading Childhood)

Reading Children, Reading Childhood
【Please note that you are assessed on a five-level scale of A+, A, B, C, or F/Fail in this course.】

This interdisciplinary course looks at conflicting ways childhood has been constructed across different times and cultures. Beginning in the eighteenth century, it focuses on four influential conceptions of children: Innocents, Workers, Consumers, and Treasures. Students will read and discuss diverse examples of children’s literature and media, including music and film, alongside works by theorists and scholars of childhood. The course has three objectives: to present students with different cultural understandings of childhood and child rearing, to help them identify these concepts across children’s media, and to give them opportunity to develop their own critical understanding of who children are and what childhood is.

At the conclusion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Engage in academic discussion of children’s literatures and cultures.
2. Develop attentive and informed close readings of various children’s media.
3. Compare depictions of children and childhood from diverse cultural settings.
