This course examines representations of the child and young adult in literature in order to explore the ways in which they revise, complement, contradict, or illuminate our notions of childhood and, implicitly, ourselves. Topics may include: the invention of childhood, the idealization or demonization of children and young adults, the child’s perspective as a medium of critique, and childhood and fantasy. Readings may include Songs of Innocence and Experience, Huckleberry Finn, Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Tar Beach.
