  • Literacy Colloquy: Popular Culture Texts in the Literacy Landscape (March 2018)

    Location:

    252 Erickson Hall, 620 Farm Lane, East Lansing, MI, 48824

    Description:

    Haeny Yoon, assistant professor in the Early Childhood Program at Teachers College, Columbia University, will speak on Popular Culture Texts in the Literacy Landscape: Play as Critical Work in Contemporary Childhood(s). At times, it makes adults uncomfortable to see children playing out typical gender roles, violent storylines, and "bathroom humor" in classroom spaces where serious academic work takes precedence over the silliness of pop culture and play. Drawing from examples in kindergarten classrooms, this presentation examines popular culture texts in the lives of young children as a performative tool--to (re)produce social identities related to race/class/gender/ability; to initiate and maintain friendships; to (re)imagine stories; and to practice literacy in authentic spaces.
