Foucault's Heterotopia and Children's Everyday Lives.
McNamee, Sara
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v7 n4 p479-92 Nov 2000
Discusses Foucault's notion of "heterotopia"--real places but which exist unto themselves, such as a floating ship. Considers data on children's use of computer and video games to apply "heterotopia" to children's everyday social lives. Argues that childhood is subject to increasing boundaries, and that children create "other" spaces through everyday leisure activities, enabling children to resist control. (JPB)
