Essays are sought for a special issue of Cultural Studies<=>Critical
Metholodologies on Race and Kids Culture. The special issue will speak to
a set of shared concerns. As corporations increasingly structure and media
almost entirely saturate the lives of children, scholars and social
critics have rightly begun to explore the articulations of power, culture,
and identity. Inspired particularly by the emergent field of cultural
studies and informed by the post-marxist, feminist, and post-structural
frameworks, they have interpreted the ways in which toys, games, movies,
television, music, and literature educate, imprint, and otherwise
interpolate them to embrace normative values and institutions.
