Pressestimmen

...I consider Serialized Citizenships one of the more valuable texts published on children's literature and childhood studies in recent years, especially for the many ways it helps us to see that boyhood is a far less stable category of cultural understanding and critical analysis than we might have believed...Serialized Citizenships brings much needed attention to the distinctive nature of the boy as a child, fiction, and citizen. Children's Literature Association Quarterly, Vol. 31, No. 4 In this study, Cohoon examines representations of American boyhood found in children's periodicals and middle-class magazines produced between 1840 and the first decade of the 20th century. Particular attention is paid to constructions of masculinity, nationality, and citizenship. Some of the texts analyzed include serialized stories by such well-known authors as Mark Twain and Louisa May Alcott, as well as less-familiar periodicals like Boys of New York. Cohoon teaches courses in children's literature at the U. of Memphis. The text is based upon her doctoral dissertation. Reference and Research Book News, August 2006
