Children's and Young Adult Film

This virtual (online) session welcomes papers that investigate the topic of Children’s and Young Adult Films. Papers that pertain to the conference theme are particularly welcome, including: perspectives on children living in the city, teenagers struggling to overthrow adult authority (in the city), youths attempting to self-govern, or pre-teens emerging from nature to first discoveries of the cityscape, and kids looking behind society’s dark curtain. In addition, this panel welcomes papers discussing the genre of Children’s or Young Adult films in other ways. Topics might include any focus on representations of the child, realizations of flawed societies, the development of community, messages of social norms, or adults as audiences of children’s films.
