ENG 292 - Aesop to Apps: Kid Lit Culture
Aesop to Apps: Critical Approaches to Kiddie Lit & Culture.
Co-requisite: ENG 293

Children’s literature with its diminutive nickname “kiddie lit” extends beyond books into a wide range of adaptations and merchandising “texts” that infuse the young reader’s everyday life with cultural learning about gender, race, class, and other ideological ideas. Through close readings of children’s literature and related texts such as films, toys, clothing, and the like, this course will introduce students to a range of critical approaches used in literary and cultural studies of childhood. Designed as part of a two-course cluster to introduce and develop the six learning outcomes of the English major. Co-requisite with ENG 293 – Children and Childhood in the 19th Century.
