Assistant Professor Rebekah Sheldon’s The Child to Come: Life after the Human Catastrophe (University of Minnesota, 2016) is recognized as a bold new reading of the child for the twenty-first century, with implications for contemporary environmentalism. Steven Bruhm (University of Western Ontario) writes: “Across literature and film, theory and technology, abundance and scarcity, Rebekah Sheldon shows us how The Child is being destroyed at the same time it is being made as a term of cultural currency.”
