Haven't read this in a while and don't remember if Althusser is mentioned or not, but it might be relevant.

Well Jack Zipes is a Marxist, but I don't know offhand whether or not he's using Althusser. That would definitely be the place to start. There may be some other stuff at hoime. I'll look.

Dear Hive Mind—
Here’s a research question. I know it’s abt fantasy, but I also know you folks are damn smart and well-read in many genres and national literatures. I’m asking the question on behalf of one of my grad students.
Can anybody recommend a critic or a text that examines children’s fantasy from a perspective that we might associate with Althusser or marxist ideological critique? Especially anything that might associate magic, say, with the function of ideology in a marxist perspective?
