  • Purple Mountains
    • Abstract: My earliest memory of the negative side of borders is vivid. I remember sitting in a classroom using crayon to add colour to what was otherwise a fairly bland, colouring-book-standard drawing of a valley, which, if the mountains in the background were any indication, belonged more to the westerly province of British Columbia, Canada, than it did to the southern Ontario home in which I lived at that time. Lucky for me, my family had recently moved from British Columbia to Ontario, and so I knew what colour the mountains in the background should be: a luminous purple. Anyone who has spent time in Kelowna, British Columbia, knows that unless they are obscured by mist, the mountains that ring the Okanagan Valley often ... Read More

  • Kid President: The Aesthetics of Childhood in Political Cartoons
    • Abstract: In May 2017, columnist David Brooks of The New York Times wrote an opinion piece entitled "When the World Is Led by a Child." The title implicates US president Donald Trump's infantilism, a condition in which adults take on the physical, psychological, linguistic, or cognitive characteristics of children. For Brooks, this infantilism is marked particularly by immaturity and lack of self-control. There are implications here, however, for interpreting not just Trump but children and childhood(s) in a negative light; Brooks's descriptions of Trump's infantilism assume that children have a hard time focusing, making it "hard for [them] to learn and master facts," and that they cannot control what comes out of their ...

  • Only Connect: Children's Literature and Its Theory in the Extended Present
    • Abstract: When things begin accelerating wildly out of control, sometimes patience is the only answer. Press pause. We have time for this.In her exploration of the discursive practices at play in how the aging process is constructed and experienced, age critic Margaret Morganroth Gullette argues that the stories we construct about different stages of life, "whatever else they do, tell the meaning of time passing" (12-13). Time is essential to concepts of childhood, and in their attempts to illuminate how one particular stage of the life course is constructed by another, scholars of children's literature have developed their own narratives of what it means to be a child. This is the subject that forms the focus of Marah ... Read More

  • Unfiltered and Unapologetic: March for Our Lives and the Political
           Boundaries of Age
    • Abstract: Spread the word, have you heard, all across the nation, we are going to be a great generation!The mass school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) in Parkland, Florida, which resulted in the deaths and injury of seventeen students and staff members, sparked national outrage over increasingly partisan approaches to the gun control debate in the United States. Parkland student activists, mobilized in part by their grief and trauma as the most recent victims of gun violence, stepped deliberately into the political arena to not only declare "enough is enough" but to demand common sense gun reform in the name of protecting vulnerable US children and youth (The Founders of March for Our Lives). From ... Read More

  • "I See Nothing but a Fence of Tears": The Impact of Australia's
           Immigration Detention and Border Protection Policies on the Asylum Seeker
           Child's Geographies of Hope and Hopelessness
    • Abstract: For the past two decades, Australia has attracted global attention for its controversial treatment of children seeking asylum. No other country mandates the closed and indefinite offshore detention of children. The Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has conducted two national inquiries into the ways in which life in immigration detention has impacted the health, well-being, and development of children. In spite of these national inquiries, the views and perspectives of children in detention, particularly those who were detained in Nauru, have not been extensively analyzed. Australia's policies are intrinsically complex and restrictive, and this paper explores the impact of these policies on asylum seeker ... Read More

  • Coming of Age in the Rio Grande Valley: Race, Class, Gender, and
           Generations in Narco Culture
    • Abstract: When contemplating social division in the borderland, it can be tempting to focus on the national border dividing the United States from Mexico, the one that presumably separates Mexican poverty from the American dream. The border separates the twin cities of Tijuana and San Diego, El Paso and Juarez, and, in the region where my research takes place, McAllen and Reynosa. Elsewhere, I have focused on the permeability of the US-Mexico border for the purpose of consumption (Vega, "Medical Mobility" 6). In this article I stress that not only is the border extremely permeable with regard to Mexican culture and the Spanish language, but that it also post-dates the existence of Mexican culture and Mexicans in the region. ...

  • Visualizing the Voiceless and Seeing the Unspeakable: Understanding
           International Wordless Picturebooks about Refugees
    • Abstract: The photograph of the prone and lifeless body of Alan Kurdi has come to define the tragedy of the migrant crisis. Three-year-old Kurdi and his family had fled the conflict in Syria for Turkey, boarding a small boat in September 2015 in the hope of reaching the nearby Greek island of Kos. The unsafe, overcrowded vessel capsized shortly after its departure; Kurdi drowned with his mother and brother. The photographs of the toddler's corpse, face-down on a foreign shore, were distributed across global media, rapidly becoming simulacrum of the shame surrounding the lack of international response to the migrant crisis. His image on the sand has come to stand not only for forced migration from war-torn parts of the ... Read More

    • Abstract: As the Walt Disney Company adapts and produces various narratives, it also engages in a process of incorporation, absorbing new narratives into the larger framework of the "magic kingdom," the overarching corporate structure intended to designate a cultural home for childhood, imagination, and reminiscence of how things were and what they might become. In essence, as the Disney corporation maintains and grows its market-share, it has grown far beyond the confines of the so-called "House of Mouse," reaching an increased range of target ages and including franchises that used to be separate, such as Star Wars and Marvel. The Disney corporation also goes to great lengths to fit such franchises into the structure of ... Read More

  • The Role of Borders in the Lives of Greek–Cypriot Enclaved Children in
           Ira Genakritou's Beyond the Barbed Wire
    • Abstract: Here I drew Cyprus, I drew the Green Line … and on the Green Line I drew the barbed wire and blood is running down from the Green Line and Cyprus is saying: "Why did you divide me in two'"The image of the "wound" inflicted on the body of Cyprus by barbed wire has dominated the national imagery of trauma and been reproduced in the collective consciousness of Greek–Cypriots; the wound has been perhaps the most tangible way to visualize the traumatic impact of division. Young Greek–Cypriots have since 1974 grown under the shadow of the "Green Line," a metal fence in the form of barbed wire extending from east to west and dividing Cyprus between north and south or "occupied" and "free" areas. Its haunting impact, being ... Read More

  • Representing Childhood and Forced Migration: Narratives of Borders and
           Belonging in European Screen Content for Children
    • Abstract: The number of people displaced by war and conflict is currently the highest seen in Western and Central Europe since the Balkan crisis of the 1990s (H. Holland). As a result of the civil war in Syria that began in 2011, by January 2017, 577,300 Syrians had arrived in Germany, 116,400 in Sweden, 51,400 in the Netherlands, 31,000 in Denmark and 11,500 in Bulgaria (Eurostat). Among the displaced Arab populations in European countries there are large numbers of children (UNICEF). The lives of these children, caught up within forced migration, are entangled with a variety of borders, both in a literal and metaphorical sense. They have crossed physical borders on their journeys to Europe, involving checkpoints, fenced-in ... Read More

  • "It's Such a Small Planet, Why Do You Need Borders'": Seeing Flying in
           Le Petit Prince and Its Screen Adaptations
    • Abstract: In Qu'est-ce que la littérature' Jean-Paul Sartre writes, "Pour nous, le faire est révélateur de l'être … chaque technique, chaque outil est un sens ouvert sur le monde … Saint-Exupéry nous a ouvert le chemin, il a montré que l'avion, pour le pilote, est un organe de perception" (236-37) ["For us, doing reveals being … each technique, each tool is a way that opens upon the world … Saint-Exupéry has opened the way for us. He has shown that, for the pilot, the airplane is an organ of perception" (What is Literature' 238)]. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was a commercial pilot delivering air mail in the 1920s and 30s and a reconnaissance pilot for the French army during the Second World War. As a commercial pilot, he was a ... Read More

  • Good, Mad, or "Incurably Bad": The Borders of Normalcy and Deviance in
           Film Representations of Sociopathic White Schoolgirls
    • Abstract: In Mervyn LeRoy's classic 1956 movie The Bad Seed, eight-year-old Rhoda Penmark murders her classmate Claude Diagle at the Fern Country Day School picnic over a penmanship award she believes she should have won.1 The boy is found, having drowned after "accidentally" falling off of a pier, with bruises from the steel taps on Rhoda's shoes on his forehead and hands. Rhoda returns home to her mother who, having seen the incident reported in the news, is worried about her daughter's reaction. This concern is compounded by shock when Rhoda, after asking for a peanut butter sandwich, nonchalantly states: "I don't feel any way at all." Rhoda later goes on to kill Leroy Jessup, the caretaker of the apartment building where ... Read More

  • Representing Death in Children's Literature: Border Crossings
    • Abstract: Borders are material and people made. Borders are constructed and negotiated as humans and environments interact. These four new texts evoke and challenge the border between life and death. The young and adolescent characters deal with the death of family members, a pet, and a friend. The books show how characters observe, experience, commemorate, and, in one case, defy crossing the border between life and death. These books also defy the representation of death in contemporary children's literature by recasting death and grieving as nuanced, complex, and diverse.The representation of death in children's literature gained prominence in the 1970s because of its use in bibliotherapy: the practice of using books to ...

  • Utopian Grandparents
    • Abstract: Devoid of academic expertise in gerontology or aging studies, I have just one qualification for discussing these picture books about old people: having been born in 1942, I am now an old person myself. Like the old people in most of these books, furthermore, I am a grandparent; and for that matter, I also once had grandparents.No wait, I have one other relevant qualification: I have read a lot of children's literature, especially picture books. And picture books have a sizeable population of grandparents. "Picture Books about Grandparents," a list on the Goodreads website, recommends 272 of them, most published in the last decade or so. One of them, Norton Juster's The Hello, Goodbye Window, illustrated by Chris ... Read More

  • Leaving Home: Stories about Immigration, Migration, and the Diaspora
    • Abstract: Current discourses about immigrants and refugees tend to characterize those leaving their homelands as criminals, monsters, and not deserving of being in the place to which they have migrated. In his introduction to a special issue of Children's Literature Association Quarterly on migration, refugees, and diaspora, Philip Nel notes that in 2018 "244 million people live outside the country of their birth. Of that number, 65.6 million have been forced to leave their homes. Nearly 22.5 million are refugees" (357). Now more than ever, we need books that depict these experiences and that humanize the children and families who endure difficult situations in search of a better life or in search of a safe(r) place to live. ...

  • Writing Identities, Erasing Borders: The Night Diary, Front Desk, and Our
           Shared Story of Migration
    • Abstract: In the August 2019 issue of National Geographic, writer Mohsin Hamid reminds us of our united state of transience, underscoring that a defining part of the human condition is to be in motion, to be a migrant: "To be human is to migrate forward through time, the seconds like islands, where we arrive, castaways, and from which we are swept off by the tide, arriving again and again, in a new instant, on a new island, one we have, as always, never experienced before." In this cultural moment, an argument like Hamid's stands in contrast to the headlines reporting the dehumanization of migrants and refugees, many of whom are children. In June, Politico reported that the US "Office of Refugee Resettlement is so swamped ... Read More

  • Beyond the Digital Border: Modern Life on the Network
    • Abstract: To consider our modern world as technologically mediated could be an understatement, as I type on my laptop a review I will submit through an online portal and people will read on the journal's webpage. Technology's growing ubiquity has shaped the way we define ourselves and live in modern society. Four YA novels take up the questions of how technology has changed us and, more importantly, how it has changed our relationships: these texts articulate how technology challenges, disrupts, or removes borders. The novels Jinxed, The Exact Opposite of Okay, All the Lonely People, and Floored engage the spaces of technology. Ranging from realistic fiction to wholly science fictional spaces, these novels approach ... Read More

  • State Against the Migrant Child: US Government Systems and Legal Processes
           in Dealing with Undocumented Youth
    • Abstract: At a time when millions of people, including children, are fleeing from poverty, violence, and mortal danger, Deborah A. Boehm and Susan J. Terrio's Illegal Encounters: The Effect of Detention and Deportation on Young People adds to a global conversation about issues to do with migrant and refugee children. Donald Trump came to power in the US, promising, when so many are desperately seeking safety, to build a wall to stop illegal immigration from Central and South America to the North. This book clearly outlines the metaphorical wall of inhumane policies and laws that impact the lives of migrant young people in the US, highlighting the clear national mission to keep immigrants out or send them back to where they ...
