Constructing "Childhood" and Creating "Children" in the 1950s: Isabel Burger and Charlotte Chorpenning.
Woodson, Stephani Etheridge
Youth Theatre Journal, v14 p132-43 2000
Examines the social construction of "childhood" and of "children" within two important theoretical texts published in the 1950s: Isabel Burger's "Creative Play Acting: Learning through Drama" and Charlotte Chorpenning's "Twenty-One Years with Children's Theatre." Finds several interrelated constructs, including: children as social capital, as hope, as future consumers, and as a complexity of needs. (SR)
