“Run Over by a Unicorn”
The introduction provides an overview of the book’s key arguments and situates it within the fields of childhood studies, media studies, and cultural studies. It describes the concept of emotional intelligence and how it has been applied in public schools as a way of managing kids’ emotions. Alternate notions of growing up come from the fields of disability studies, where nonnormative forms of expression such as music and drawing are valorized. These forms lead to a more capacious realm of expression than storytelling in its normative, linear mode.
