Visual Encounters in the Study of Rural Childhoods Paperback / softback
Edited by April R. Mandrona, Claudia Mitchell
Visual Encounters in the Study of Rural Childhoods brings together visual studies and childhood studies to explore images of childhood in the study of rurality and rural life.
The volume highlights how the voices of children themselves remain central to investigations of rural childhoods.
Contributions look at representations and experiences of rural childhoods from both the Global North and Global South (including U.S., Canada, Haiti, India, Sweden, Slovenia, South Africa, Russia, Timor-Leste, and Colombia) and consider visuals ranging from picture books to cell phone video to television.
