CSOCS 1150 FYS - The Image of the Child:From Perception to Actualization

What images of children exist in the minds of adults, who make decisions that affect our youngest citizens? How are children portrayed in the media? This seminar will explore art, music, literature, and film to inspire ideas about children's rights — to play, to joy, to childhood — and the ways that we can advocate for children in public arenas. We will consider provocations from different academic disciplines to generate new ways of thinking about children's participation and actualization in the U.S. and in the global domain.
