Why was the figure of the child so significant for Victorians? Examine childhood in 19th century Britain alongside current theoretical understandings of childhood. Discuss J.M. Barrie’s "Peter Pan" and Lewis Carroll’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" in conjunction with John Logan’s award-winning play, “Peter and Alice,” in our efforts to interrogate power dynamics between adults and children, concepts of “innocence,” memory, and the passage of time.
