  • Disney Prince
    • Abstract: They're beautiful, aren't they, the Conways' Their youth, their two little children. The country is falling in love with them. They won't fall in love with us like that, but we have something they don't. We are willing to go one step farther than everyone else.The quotation I have chosen to introduce this editorial comes from an episode in the fourth season of House of Cards, in which the Underwoods' claim on political power is challenged by Governor Will Conway (played by Joel Kinnaman) and his wife Hannah (Dominique McElligott). What the Conways have and the Underwoods do not is a claim on the child, achieved through their possession of youth and actual children: the Conways are roughly twenty years younger than ...

  • David A. Carter, Alexander Calder, and the Childlikeness of the Moveable
           Book: Children as "Children of All Ages"
    • Abstract: "A Pop-Up Book for Children of All Ages:" One Red Dot, Blue 2, 600 Black Spots, Yellow Square, and White Noise, five books produced by the American author and illustrator David A. Carter between 2004 and 2009, share this subtitle.1 It appears to define an audience different from that of other children's books, which tend to be identified as being intended or appropriate for children of specific ages: beginning readers, middle-graders, young adults, and so on. The phrase "children of all ages" also often appears in contexts that suggest that some of those "children" are adults who retain characteristics believed to be typical of youngsters—or perhaps, children who display characteristics believed to be typical of ...

  • A Rhizomatic Exploration of Adolescent Girls' Rough-and-Tumble Play as
           Embodied Literacy
    • Abstract: Beading class ended on a late April Monday, when the end of the school year produced precariousness in previously more stable activities and emotions. Suddenly, there was a crash as a voluminous tic-tac of bouncing glass seed beads scattered across the floor. Several girls bent low, fumbling to collect the beads.I asked, "[Do] you know where the vacuum is'"Boo1 ordered, "Go get Henry, Toni."Before Toni could respond, Boo exited the room. She returned momentarily, smiling and lugging a vacuum cleaner at her heels. She said, "This is Henry." She was referring to the school's Henry Hoover vacuum cleaner. Less than fifteen inches tall, it was designed with a painted smiling face, a black hat, a vacuum hose-nose, and ... Read More

  • Katniss Everdeen's Posthuman Identity in Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games
           Series: Free as a Mockingjay'
    • Abstract: Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games trilogy is usually classed as dystopian fiction,1 a genre that favours the blurring of boundaries and open-ended conclusions.2 The categorization fits, as the trilogy features both of these characteristics. While Ellyn Lem and Holly Hassel (118–19) explore the blurring of boundaries governing gender in their analysis of the trilogy, in this article I focus on the blurring of boundaries governing speciation that occurs in Collins's text through the symbolic figure of the mockingjay. The blurring of species boundaries is central to theories of the posthuman, a term frequently used to describe a range of possible radical changes faced by contemporary humanity in response to recent ...

  • Identity and Survival in the Multimedia Art of Street-Involved Youth
    • Abstract: It's 6:30 p.m. in Vancouver, British Columbia, and fifteen youth are milling around a media room at the back of Directions Youth Services, a centre for homeless, at-risk, and street-involved youth. The media room is the obvious hub at Directions, with a big screen TV, several computers, a small studio space, and plenty of seating. The youth make full use of the space, visiting with each other, checking email, playing video games, and chatting with staff. Eventually a group settles around a table in the middle of the room in preparation for a bi-weekly meeting about Another Slice, a multimedia blog that showcases the talents of the centre's young people. It is a regular occurrence at Directions, but this week is a ... Read More

Her work appeared in leading periodicals of the time, first in the form of advertisements and eventually as illustrations published on their own merit. She was also a sought-after illustrator of children's books by authors such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Louisa May Alcott, Charles Kingsley, and Frances Hodgson Burnett, and became a household name in the early 1900s. Carolyn Kitch positions Smith's extensive cover art for magazines such as Good Housekeeping, McClure's, Ladies' Home Journal, and Woman's Home Companion as critical in "idealiz[ing] American childhood," in particular a childhood ...

  • Rethinking Street Culture: Enacting Youthful Defiance'
    • Abstract: In Understanding Street Culture, Jonathan Ilan analyzes one of the key areas of future concern for young people: how they engage in street culture and the links between street cultural practices and disparate forms of marginality, criminalization, poverty, transgression, and consumerism. Chapter 1 begins with an inquiry into street culture as concept and mode of theorization. The author contends that it is not "a form of 'resistance', but rather a posture of defiance" (21). The precise differences between these terms is not very clear, given that the definitions themselves tend to imply one another (resistance meaning refusal to comply and defiance meaning open resistance and disobedience). In the conclusion ... Read More

  • La littérature de jeunesse entre les langues et à travers le
           temps
    • Abstract: Ce volume surgit de la croissance parallèle, dès les années 1990, de l'intérêt académique pour la retraduction et pour la littérature de jeunesse, habilement documentée par Florence Cabaret dans son introduction. La retraduction offre une perspective diachronique pour étudier une littérature dont le statut, dedans et au-delà de l'université, a changé considérablement à travers le dernier siècle avec l'évolution des conceptions de l'enfant et de la littérature jeunesse, où la traduction et la retraduction ont toujours joué un rôle important (surtout hors du contexte anglophone, comme le précise Virginie Douglas dans sa conclusion [318]).En général, les contributeurs et contributrices à La Retraduction en littérature ...

  • The Terror of Childness in Modern Horror Cinema
    • Abstract: In "An Introduction to the American Horror Film," Robin Wood argues that "the true subject of the horror genre is the struggle for recognition of all that our civilization represses or oppresses" (203). Given the predisposition of horror films to give a voice (albeit an often violent one) to marginalized people, repressed groups in Western society are a natural fit for the genre. As a result, women, people with disabilities, and, as is the subject of Markus P. J. Bohlmann and Sean Moreland's edited volume Monstrous Children and Childish Monsters: Essays on Cinema's Holy Terrors, children, have been taking their cinematic revenge on the marginalizing forces of society throughout the history of the genre. ...

  • Adult-Child Negotiations of Environmental Encounters: Mediating a Future
           of Hope
    • Abstract: In their seminal text The Ecocriticism Reader, Cheryll Glotfelty and Harold Fromm argue that the environment is the "most pressing contemporary issue of all" (xv), particularly because "man's relationship with Nature is non-negotiable" (39). While issues such as gender and class have become important areas of study within literary criticism, Laurence Coupe suggests that no other issue is of similar importance than is the environment in today's scholarly landscape. In response to the current environmental crisis, the last few decades have similarly seen a surge in environmental criticism of children's literature1 in addition to an increase in the number of environmental texts for young readers. While the ... Read More

  • Childhood, Children's Literature, and Postcolonialism
    • Abstract: Despite more than five decades of dedicated scholarship, the field of postcolonial studies has still to make significant inroads into children's literary and cultural studies. In a similar vein, children's literary and cultural studies have been somewhat reluctant to enter the field of postcolonial studies; when children's literary and cultural studies scholars have made a foray into it, they have tended to rely on a handful of key thinkers. There is a paltry amount of material that brings postcolonialism and children's cultures together, a surprising research lacuna when one considers that the modern concept of childhood has supported—and even made possible—the European colonial enterprise.1 Part of the problem ...
