Description: In this advanced seminar-designed for students in Division II or Division III-we will critically examine ideas about children and youth through readings primarily in childhood studies, sociology of childhood, and critical developmental psychology. An important component of students' work in this course is to critically evaluate ideas, practices, and methodologies related to childhood and youth in their own academic studies, including areas not listed above such as youth and the arts, education, literature, and history. This course is recommended for students whose concentration intersects with the Critical Studies of Childhood, Youth, and Learning (CYL) program. Prerequisite: Previous coursework in childhood studies is required.
