This course gives an analysis of developments in cultural artefacts for children in their societal context since the 18th century. At the end of the course students have knowledge of and insight in the relationship between the different institutions in the field of children's culture. They have learnt to analyze, interprete and evaluate cultural artefacts and they are able to make connections between the different genres.

Recommended Prerequisites
In the course there are two central questions:
1. What are the developments in cultural artefacts for children since the 18th century?
2. What are the approaches to children and culture during this period?

The second half of the 18th century is considered as the period in which children became more and more separated from the adult world (Dasberg, 1984). As far as cultural artefacts are concerned, this interest in children resulted in a literature specifically written for children. What had this literature to offer to children and how did she develop since then? What role did illustrations play in this development and when can we speak of picture books as a genre? And was there more for children than just books? Was there for example theatre for children?

In this course different cultural artefacts and their interrelations will be discussed. An example of such relationship is adaptations of classic children's books for film, theatre and games.
