"Soon He Will Boil over Like a Kettle": Visualizing the Invisible--The Representation of "Hyperactivity" in Women's Magazines and Professional Journals for Teachers in Flanders (1965-2005)
Vanobbergen, Bruno
History of Education, v36 n2 p173-189 Mar 2007
This article takes a relational approach to childhood to focus on the discourse surrounding children's "hyperactive" bodies, currently defined as children with Attention Deficit Hyperactvity Disorder (ADHD). Based on analyses of articles in the major women's magazines and professional journals for teachers, published in Flanders from 1965 until the present, the article examines how the notion of "the hyperactive child" has been constructed and reconstructed during the last four decades. (Contains 4 figures and 51 footnotes.)
