[UPDATE] Literature and the World: Children and Childhood in Global Contexts

full name / name of organization: 
The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies
contact email: 
jgaeta@css.edu

The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies invites submissions centered on the theme Children and Childhood in Global Contexts. As scholars try to elucidate the complex relationships between history and cultural identity or development, one key demographic seems consistently overlooked: children. It could be argued that scholarship intended to enlighten may also be unwittingly biased in favor of a narrative situating children as innocent, naïve, and ultimately unimportant actors. Or at the very least, they are seen as actors whose importance can only be evaluated independently of the “adult” world to which they do not, presumably, belong. However, what happens when we acknowledge children in contexts contrary to such an absolute narrative? For instance, consider the complexities surrounding cultural identification in French overseas departments – where colonial policies of assimilation led inhabitants to vote in favor of remaining “French” in the mid 20th century – and how continued political and economic ties have problematized these departments' ability to carve out independent identities. An analysis of this phenomenon might be expected to include the role of children, as these individuals will internalize and carry with them into adulthood the cultural attitudes and social norms to which they are exposed during their formative years, thus providing a potential means of social change (or perpetuation) through the process of socialization. The child, or more specifically the education, media, and relationships the child experiences, cannot be entirely separated from the larger issue – a collective sense of cultural identity. Yet the view of children as innocent or irrelevant continues to pervade the larger body of scholarship addressing “adult” issues around the world. This forum seeks to problematize that view by inviting submissions providing a critical examination of the relevancy of children and/or childhood from a variety of perspectives. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, children as subjects and audience in cultural production, representations in the media, postcolonial educational systems, childhood and culture. Please study the submission guidelines before submitting, see http://www2.css.edu/app/depts/HIS/historyjournal/index.cfm?cat=4&art=15 Submissions should be sent to the forum’s Coordinating Editor Dr. Gaeta, jgaeta@css.edu , and the Chief Editor, Dr. Liang, hliang@css.edu
