The Counterfeit Child
Western Faculty of Arts & Humanities presents: Faculty Lecture Series 2012-13 Dr. Steven Bruhm, Dept. of English presents: The Counterfeit Child
It is our great wish that our children be special, unique, a cut above the rest. But fiction can show us what might happen if that wish were to be granted: children who are really alien invaders with superior intelligence; cunning adults posing as children and exercising their cute wiles to disastrous effects; or demonic spawn bent from the cradle on taking over the world! This talk considers a range of "counterfeit" children and why they are so popular in current literature and film.
