Both traditional and new media texts incorporate representations of the child that are gendered, sexualised, pathologised and commodified. In this unit, students critically engage with a range of texts representing the child as embodied subject, and research and respond to the politics of representation. Building on their understanding of narrative theory, ideology, power and identity as they operate in literature and other textual forms, students investigate how texts intervene in the construction of the embodied child as a gendered and sexual subject.
