Description: This course involves "rethinking childhood" by exploring ideas about young people through interweaving social and literary analysis. Readings encompass approaches to critical thinking about children and childhood in sociology, critical psychology, children's literature, and childhood studies, along with readings in twentieth century American poetry. A central goal of this course is to consider poetry for, by, and about children as sites for integrating literary and social analysis in the service of rethinking childhood.
