Abstract

The Child Savage's most striking quality is the way in which it draws on a breadth of contributors, national traditions, and media to create a nuanced cultural history of the child-savage trope. Its editor, Elisabeth Wesseling, brings together scholars from children's literature, education, media studies, cultural theory, history, popular culture, and other fields to expose the way the child-savage trope persists and adapts as it moves among media.
