Childhood Through Culture
The objective of this course is to analyze childhood as a social construction, as a period of psychological development, as a horror story, as a time when lessons about human nature become formative tests, and as a stage when myths, for example as created by children’s literature, trigger certain imaginary beliefs. Through theoretical and literary texts, students will reflect on these aspects and their pedagogical possibilities. (1 unit)
