VITALICH SALLAN, Pablo A.. Magazines for children and youngsters: sensibility and the construction of the self. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp. 293-303. ISSN 1851-1686.
The purpose of this article is to discuss on the topic of infantile culture throught the specific case of magazines of massive spreading directed to the population of youngsters. As objects of enjoyment, these magazines presuppose, reproduce and invent a scene in which the infantile subjectivity reflects, discovers and constitutes itself. In first instance this material is described in terms of a compound of statements and visibilities that operate as means, the soil and knowledge in which subjectivity finds established answers of what it means to be, and the practices throughout which it can constitute itself regarding sensibility. Simultaneously, a ground for a critical operation that denounces the way in which this material does a reactive use of imagination will be provided.
