This course involves "rethinking childhood" by exploring ideas about young people through interweaving social and literary analysis.  Readings encompass approaches to rethinking childhood in the interdisciplinary field of childhood studies, which brings together critical thinking about children and childhood across social science disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, and critical psychology, along with readings in twentieth century American poetry.  A central goal of this course is to consider poetry for, by, and about children as a site for integrating literary and social analysis in the service of rethinking childhood.
