Why Children's Magazines Matter: A Lecture at Guilford College

I was honored to be asked to deliver the annual Rembert W. Patrick Lecture to the History Department at Guilford College on April 24th. My talk, entitled Why Children's Magazines Matter: Studying Artifacts of Popular Culture, focused on my research process for Commercializing Childhood to illuminate how we can use popular artifacts such as children's magazines to discover broader cultural patterns in U.S. history.
