  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: This first issue of the JHCY's Volume 11 highlights children and youth in the contexts of war, the law, and the transmission of cultural heritage.Children of the Second World War is not an underserved topic, in this journal or anywhere else. Yet two articles in this issue find an original twist: both deal with the responses to the child crisis caused by the war in neutral countries—Sweden and Switzerland—where children from Finland and from Belgium and France, respectively, found havens from the war.This issue also features two roundtables. The first was drawn from a panel at the 2017 American Historical Association in Denver: "Childhood in Liminal Legal Spaces." Featuring four historians of American childhood, the ... Read More

  • Saving Foreign Children From "Moral Decay": Switzerland's Children's Homes
           During the Second World War
    • Abstract: The Second World War unleashed overwhelming violence against children. Many governments and aid agencies rose to the challenge to protect war-victimized children, ranging from large-scale evacuations to local daily soup kitchens. But due to the lack of international laws to protect children, governments had no legal right to position themselves within enemy territory, even on behalf of children. Therefore, any humanitarian intervention by governments or organizations, however delayed or poorly executed, was unusual and voluntary.Governments' motivations to save children in war served dual purposes. First, the act of protecting children usually served an immediate national and/or diplomatic benefit. For example, in ... Read More

  • Agentic Subjects and Objects of Political Propaganda: Swedish Media
           Representations of Children in the Mobilization For Supporting Finland
           During World War II
    • Abstract: Children are often portrayed as defenseless victims of war. This notion has had several applications. For example, children have been important objects of wartime propaganda, as the innocence and vulnerability attributed to them can be used to mobilize defense as well as sympathy and, later, relief efforts. However, during war and periods of crisis, issues concerning children's agency and participation are also brought to the fore, and ideals related to children and childhood can be stretched and negotiated.1 This may concern everyday life and political struggle, as well as actual fighting on the battlefield. Using media material from World War II, the present article seeks to demonstrate that, within the media ... Read More

  • Studying Underage Enlistment in the American Civil War
    • Abstract: Editor's note: These papers and comments were first delivered at the 2017 American Historical Association meeting. Although the authors had a chance to revise them, taken together they retain the simple and direct approach of conference papers. As "compelling examples of why the history of children and childhood is such an illuminating way to examine the American or any past," in the words of Michael Grossberg, who commented on the panel and provides the closing thoughts to this roundtable, these articles capture the essence of this journal's purpose.Some years ago, both working on topics that had little to do with the history of childhood, we came across an intriguing body of archival material: a vast ...

  • Miscegenation Law and the Politics of Mixed-Race Illegitimate Children in
           the Turn-of-the-Century United States
    • Abstract: In April of 1913, representatives of the Illinois legislature were in session in Springfield to debate laws designed to curtail the rights of African Americans. At the same time, the Illinois Protective League, a group of about 100 Illinois African American men and women, was also meeting to discuss how to frame their opposition to these Jim Crow laws. Members of the League voiced their objections to a bill that would ban marriage between black and white people in the state of Illinois. While the spokesperson for the group explained that African Americans had no special desire to intermarry with white Americans, he argued that the bill stigmatized and marked African Americans as second-class citizens and that it ...

  • The Wolf at the Door: Child Actors in Liminal Legal Spaces
    • Abstract: Charlie Chaplin's The Kid (1921) launched little Jackie Coogan into stardom. The chemistry between the boy and the veteran actor was undeniable, but it was in the dramatic scene where policemen wrestled the youngster from Chaplin's "tramp" character that the young actor revealed his thespian prowess. In that scene, tears streamed down the child's cheeks; his face contorted as if in pain. With his little arms outstretched, palms up and fingers grasping, he desperately sought the comfort of his protector—a con-man and ne'er-do-well, but the only daddy the foundling had known. By the time that Chaplin yelled, "Cut!" the boy was nearly inconsolable; for the child, the difference between acting and authenticity was ... Read More

  • A Few Comments
    • Abstract: The essays in this roundtable give us three compelling examples of why the history of children and childhood is such an illuminating way to examine the American or any past. Rebecca, Frances, Nick, and Jennifer trace a number of legal issues that informed the status and rights of various groups of American children in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century America. They ask how political, social, and economic transitions resulted in the creation of particular liminal legal spaces that held a number of children in contingent status while the United States legal system grappled with changing notions of race, childhood, and labor. Drawing on my studies of the history of child protection, I want to highlight a ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: On September 1, 2016, Vladimir Putin's educational project Junarmija (Young Army) was officially introduced into Russian schools, after the supposedly successful completion of a state-funded pilot project launched by the Russian Ministry of Education in April 2015. From age ten onwards, Russian children who choose to join this army are taught how to assemble and use a gun. They are introduced into military tactics and subjected to military drills. To boost their morale they are also treated to history lessons about Russia's heroes. The aims of the Junarmija are clearly stated in the oath of allegiance sworn during the inauguration ceremony: "I swear to aim for victories in studies and sports, to live a healthy ... Read More

  • Captain Euro and Citizenship Education: Creating A Comic Book Hero for
           European Children
    • Abstract: This critical essay focuses on the notion of identity and examines to what extent the comic book hero Captain Euro represents a unified symbol of European citizenship for child readers. Created in 1998 on commission for the European Union, the Captain Euro comic book storyline was designed to introduce and strengthen European identity and citizenship amongst children in the union. Using digital and online spaces, artists envisioned the character in a similar vein to the Captain America figure, who himself was introduced to American comic book readers during World War II to encourage patriotism and a sense of unity.1 The Captain Euro comic book includes various heroes who represent the values and ideals celebrated ...

  • Whose Canon': The Absence of Children's Voices in the Polish Canon
           Battle
    • Abstract: In our discussion below, we focus on the current debate about the school canon in Poland as an example of the instrumentalization of children's and young adult literature for the purpose of reintroducing nationalist agendas. Similar tendencies can be observed in other postcommunist countries, which still struggle both with the totalitarian legacy and the sudden inevitability of internationalism, as well as in Western European countries, such as Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. We find it striking that in all these countries, the school reading lists have been designed only by government and education stakeholders, with no input from children, whose growing access to global culture exposes them to ...

  • Renegotiating Cultural Heritage and Personal Belonging: The Anne Frank
           Museum in Aidan Chambers's Postcards from No Man's Land and John Green's
           The Fault in Our Stars
    • Abstract: Literary heritage tourism is a collective practice where people gather to visit places that they have either read about or where they know important literary works originated. This practice fosters a community that is somewhat at odds with the private experience that reading a book usually is. While for some readers, this community may be desirable and foster feelings of mutual recognition, endorse personal experiences and create a sense of "home," for others it may have the opposite effect, disrupting the sense of belonging that they had while reading. In this article, I analyze two young adult novels, Aidan Chambers's Postcards from No Man's Land and John Green's The Fault in Our Stars. Both feature a teenager ... Read More

  • Musical Roots and Routes and Senses of Belonging
    • Abstract: Music enjoys a special status as "the sound of home." It is a powerful artifact as such for reflecting on, negotiating, and acting out one's identity and sense of belonging. The relationship between people and their home, in terms of place, can be understood as a complementarity of roots and routes, that is, as anchorage to "the soil" and as mobility. Understanding how music works as roots of identity and as routes towards new citizenship in a cultural and emotional sense, without lapsing into pure romanticism, is vital to investigate because knowledge of how music functions as a facilitating tool for negotiating identity and heritage can serve as a foundation for citizenship education.1In this piece I approach ...

  • Prix Jeunesse and the Negotiation of Citizenship in Children's Television
    • Abstract: Television has been blamed for many evils in the last seventy years when it comes to its child viewers. It has been accused of making children passive, obese, fixated on pointless consumption, antisocial, and emotionally numb, to mention just a few examples.1 However, there are organizations that persistently have advocated for the medium's potentials for making a positive influence on children's lives. One of these institutions is the German Prix Jeunesse Foundation. In a policy paper from 1991, the foundation stated how children's television could help make children understand their role as citizens in a culturally diverse world:The PRIX JEUNESSE promotes and supports the production of quality television ...

  • Children As World Citizens: Diversity, Pluralistic Citizenship, and
           Belonging in the O Mundo Picture Book Project
    • Abstract: For as long as it has been recorded, human history has featured migration. Recent European history, too, has seen vast amounts of people leaving their home countries, looking to build a new existence elsewhere. Throughout Europe, various social and cultural institutions attempt to address the renegotiation of belonging and identity that migration entails. In the Belgian region of Flanders, Iedereen Leest (Everybody Reads), an organization for reading promotion, introduced O Mundo—The World in a Library, in this context. The project is meant to foster interethnic and intercultural understanding in Flemish pupils and to help migrant children develop a feeling of belonging in their new habitat. In doing so, O Mundo ...

  • Taking Children Into A World of Stories: The Dutch Children's Book Museum
           and Active Citizenship Education
    • Abstract: One of the issues discussed at the annual conference of the Network of European Museum Organizations in 2013 was the contribution of museums to the development of an active European citizenship. The discussion centered on the responsibility museums have in regard to the promotion of democratic rights and responsibilities and in "shaping an active civil society."1 Whereas in the past the main task of museums as institutions where cultural heritage is preserved and presented to the public was to shape the common history of a nation, region, or community, the goals set today by the European Community, for example, are broader and more challenging: they are asked to provide ample opportunities for an active exploration ...

  • Fostering on the Farm: Child Placement in the Rural Midwest by Megan Birk

    • Abstract: Megan Birk's Fostering on the Farm: Child Placement in the Rural Midwest expands what we know about the care of dependent children in the United States from the 1870s through the 1920s. This regional study of the practice of placing children with farm families joins such notable works as Linda Gordon's The Great Arizona Orphan Abduction (1999), Marilyn Irvin Holt's The Orphan Train: Placing Out in America (1992), and Stephen O'Connor's Orphan Trains: The Story of Charles Loring Brace and the Children He Saved and Failed (2001). But Birk does not merely repeat the now familiar story of the well-intentioned though misguided eastern reformers who sent urban children west by train to begin life anew on western farms. ...

  • Innocent Experiments: Childhood and the Popular Culture of Science in the
           United States by Rebecca Onion (review)
    • Abstract: Rebecca Onion's excellent new book, Innocent Experiments: Childhood and the Popular Culture of Science in the United States, begins by parsing a 2012 photograph of eighth grader Joey Hudy and President Barack Obama firing an "Extreme Marshmallow Cannon" during a White House–hosted science fair. Boyish delight unites the pair: Obama is wide-eyed and open-mouthed at the marshmallow's trajectory, while Hudy beams at his machine's power. But the imposing setting—the State Dining Room—and the president's presence makes clear that such extracurricular tinkering is more than child's play. Rather, it is a matter of grave national concern. The photo is a neat entrée into Onion's history of the ways amusement and anxiety ... Read More

Fitting to its title, the sumptuous book, which features fifteen essays and seventy-one images from published and unpublished children's works, is a truly delightful "story time" in itself. Its pages contain tales of dueling librarians and authors; collaborations between writers not best known for children's literature (namely Langston Hughes and Arna Bontemps); immigrants becoming illustrators; and even "wayward animals," llamas who intrude into Karl Marx's famous analysis of ...

  • A Legal History of Adoption in Ontario, 1921–2015 by Lori Chambers
           (review)
    • Abstract: The year 2016–2017 was momentous for the history of adoption. Class action suits and policy recommendations forced governments to confront the legacy of inequities spawned by historic adoption laws and practices. Notably, survivors of the Sixties Scoop reached an agreement with the state that will compensate indigenous adoptees removed from their communities and placed in nonindigenous homes. In an attempt to improve the quality of care, the Ontario government issued a report outlining reforms, such as extending the age of child protection from sixteen to eighteen and including new standards for group homes. Furthermore, Ontario passed the All Families are Equal Act, which eliminated the discriminatory adoption ... Read More

    • Abstract: Allison Varzally's Children of Reunion: Vietnamese Adoptions and the Politics of Family Migrations is an excellent contribution to the growing literature on US-Vietnam relations after 1975 and gender and foreign policy. The book provides a nuanced examination of the fraught politics of adoption, recognizing the competing stories of Vietnamese and US parents and always finding the balance between personal stories and political significance. This book will be read alongside recent works in Critical Refugee Studies, by scholars like Yen Le Espiritu, and in the recent proliferation of books on international adoption, such as Catherine Ceniza Choy's Global Families: A History of Asian International Adoption and Laura ...

  • Child Insanity in England, 1845–1907 by Steven J. Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: In this new volume for the series Palgrave Studies in the History of Childhood, edited by George Rousseau and Laurence Brockliss, Steven Taylor examines the history of child insanity in England. Primarily concerned with assessing the extent of the institutionalization of children in public institutions, given that scholarship to date has focused largely on children in private institutions, Taylor seeks to plot a larger history and pattern the meanings of child insanity in order to address a missing part of the historiography of insanity, and also of childhood. Overall, Taylor convincingly advances the topic as worthy of far greater attention in the field: overlooking the children inside the pauper asylum and the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Age Norms and Intercultural Interaction in Colonial North America argues that chronological age and age stages (childhood, youth, old age) comprised one important way that white colonists, Indians, and enslaved Africans understood themselves and one another during the first two centuries of European settlement in North America. Writing against a narrative that asserts that most seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Americans did not know their ages or identify with age as a marker of identity, Jason Eden and Naomi Eden assert that "a significant number of early Americans were aware of their age in rather precise terms" (179–80). Drawing on a diverse array of sources, including laws, personal papers, runaway slave ... Read More

Edited by University of Connecticut professor Anna Mae Duane and comprised of contributions from literary scholars, historians, activists, and philosophers, the book demands that its readers acknowledge an unsavory reality: "children have often provided both the conceptual underpinning for justifying slavery and much of the labor within slavery's machinations" (4). Despite the historical entanglement of the concepts of childhood and slavery—both are dependent on notions of their subjects as helpless, unable to consent, deprived of ... Read More

  • Two Weeks Every Summer: Fresh Air Children and the Problem of Race in
           America by Tobin Miller Shearer (review)
    • Abstract: Since the 1870s, organizations affiliated with the Fresh Air reform movement have transported thousands of low-income children from their homes in cities around the United States for summer visits with rural and suburban families. Fresh Air programs served children of European descent almost exclusively until the end of World War II, when children of color began receiving invitations for exurban vacations and eventually, due to the changing racial composition of urban poverty, became the core subjects of Fresh Air reform. Tobin Miller Shearer investigates how Fresh Air programs' overwhelmingly white leadership and supporters reckoned with race during the period of demographic transition between 1939 and 1979. ...

  • Maintaining Segregation: Children and Racial Instruction in the South,

    • Abstract: Leeann Reynolds in Maintaining Segregation: Children and Racial Instruction in the South, 1920–1955 explores how children were raised to accept segregation in the American South. Reynolds makes a critical intervention in the fields of history, education, and childhood and youth studies by exploring how Southern children understood segregation as an immutable facet of life. Reynolds's insightful text brings the readers into some of the most intimate moments of socialization that occurred in homes and childhood friendships through gripping narratives. Her analysis reminds us that deconstructing the silence around segregation is a critical task for scholars as our nation continues to struggle with white ... Read More
