FYSP 099 - Inventing Childhood


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4HU, WR
We take the idea of the “child” for granted, yet the works that we’ll encounter in this course consider many different kinds of “children.” How do art and literature imagine the child as an aesthetic, historical, and cultural construct? We will consider works by authors such as Blake, Wordsworth, Rossetti, The Brothers Grimm, and Joyce as we consider what sorts of things it has meant to be, imagine, or represent the “child” in the nineteenth century.
Enrollment Limit: 14
