Abstract

This essay revisits Lee Edelman’s work on the futurism of “the Child” by examining contemporary cultural spectacles of dead children, exemplified in The Hunger Games. I will re-evaluate the symbolism of “the Child” a decade after Edelman’s No Future by thinking about the intersections between queer children and killer children.
