From Disney to Dr. Seuss, the stories and images that entertain us as children shape our notions of the world. But what do we really know about these ubiquitous images? This seminar examines the historic, political, and religious foundations of the art of childhood in an effort to challenge our childish notions of visual culture and promote critical viewing of familiar imagery. Topics addressed in this seminar will include but are not limited to: constructs of gender and race in children’s literature illustration, the fairy tale in horror and in adult-themed contemporary culture, and the Third Reich and the Holocaust on the nursery bookshelf.
