Children's Culture and Media

Through examination of children's classics and fairy tales, as well as empirical research on gender development in early childhood, this course analyzes media corporations' role in shaping children's imaginations and in commercializing children's culture. Students explore media literacy and cultural policies that can promote a healthy cultural environment for children; analyze the content of children's media; and develop research skills to investigate the production of children's media, media effects on children, media literacy, and cultural policies.
