Children's Lit.

CHL 419B - Genre Study: Humor

This course will examine the many facets of humor in literature for young people, focusing particularly on the literary, historical, and societal significance of making readers laugh. Students will examine the history and philosophy behind humor for children, as well as the uses of humor as entertainment, social commentary, and literary device. The class will also consider how specific humor techniques make a text funny for particular audiences, and how subjectivity, societal influences, and personal preference play a role in judging a comedic work's success.

CHL 429B - The Girl Reader, 1868-1908

The title of this course is a direct and deliberate allusion to Kate Flint's The Woman Reader, 1837-1914, a book she describes as an 'examin[ation] of the topos of the woman reader, and its functioning in the cultural debate between the accession of Queen Victoria and the First World War.' In this course, we'll examine the topos of the girl reader, focusing on four classic versions of this figure: Jo March, Rose Campbell, Rebecca Rowena Randall (named for the two heroines of Scott's Ivanhoe), and Anne Shirley. The cultural debate we'll consider has to do with both gender-in that we will be thinking about the status of the girl reader at the height of first-wave feminism-and genre, as we consider what John Guillory calls the 'institutional presentation' of the canonical in books for young girls written during the Golden Age of children's literature. We'll think about the valorization of Wordsworth in Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, of Scott in Alcott's Eight Cousins, of Shakespeare and Dickens in Little Women, of Tennyson in Anne of Green Gables, for example. We'll compile reading lists of what the girls in these novels read; we'll look at scenes of participatory reading, and we'll think about these characters' 'fictional reading' (the phrase is Flint's) versus our own actual reading.

CHL 438 - Greening of Children's & Ya Literature

Grounded in literary analysis and respect for the earth, ecocriticism is a way to respond to global injustices and accelerating climate crisis. It asks, what is the role of the humanities in addressing environmental issues and in forming possible solutions? To answer, this course will build a theoretical foundation for ecocriticism as it applies to children's and young adult literature. Drawing from a diverse range of voices and texts (e.g., The Lorax, The Birchbark House, The Hunger Games, The Hate U Give), we will work to decenter dominant paradigms, which privilege (white) human life above all other nature, by troubling ideas of what constitutes wilderness, consciousness, agency, and growth.
