Kupferman presents paper at Reconceptualizing Early Childhood Education conference
David Kupferman, School of Teaching and Learning, presented a paper at the Reconceptualizing Early Childhood Education (RECE) conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, in October. His paper, titled “Undead Dummies and Killer Dolls: The Inequality of Evil in Childhood,” focuses on how society produces children as monstrous through depictions of killer dolls, killer clowns, and ventriloquist dummies. The paper will be included as a chapter in a forthcoming book Kupferman is editing on childhood and science fiction, which is scheduled for publication in 2019. He also served as the chair of the panel session that included his presentation.
