Idylls and othernesses: Childhood and rurality in film.
In: Jones, O. , ed.
Manchester: Manchester University Press, pp. 177-194.
The initial premise of this chapter is simple. If there are discourses of rural childhood and rural childhood idyll in literature, music, art, advertisements and so forth, then it can be expected that these will have extended into the realms of television and film as they have risen to cultural pre-eminence throughout the twentieth century. The questions remain; in what ways has this occurred, and in what ways does the medium of film itself develop, intensify and/or subvert the discourses of rurality and childhood it carries?
