This course examines the social, cultural and economic relationship between children and the media. You will be introduced to key debates around representations of children and childhood in the media, consideration of children as ‘a very special audience’, the performative labour and celebritisation of children, and the changing nature of children’s engagement with media platforms and texts. The course includes a focus on the regulation and production of media content for children that will provide you with a functional understanding of this dynamic, transforming space.
