OVERVIEW:  Comparing international frameworks, we will look through a Danish lens to examine how literature, film, libraries and museums collectively generate
cultural constructions of childhood. This academically rigorous class, which
includes an online component and two weeks in Denmark, offers an engaging
opportunity to examine the following:
*   What does it mean to be a child in other countries compared to the
United States?
*   How do the issues faced by professionals working in these areas
compare to ones faced by professionals in the United States?
*   What can we learn from another culture, and how can our new knowledge
translate into ideas for practice in the U.S.?
Combines online course delivery with face-to-face class time in Denmark; course runs online May 23-June 3 and June 18-July 16, with two weeks in
Denmark, June 3-17. Additional details about the course can be found
