Suffering and remembering longest, children lose most in war. Recent memoirs by "hidden children" of the Holocaust, adolescent diaries from war zones, and oral histories of teenage victims of domestic and urban violence challenge stereotypes of war stories. Examining the sense of lost childhood and fear of violence which pervade our society, this seminar explores how trauma has been constituted and problematized in children's literature. How do these texts portray young killers and consumers, soldiers and refugees, victims and survivors of crisis? In what ways do fairy tales, as well as empire and frontier, continue to influence media, film, and popular culture for the young? What roles do gender, classic war stories, national identity, family resilience, issues of guilt and innocence, cross-writing, amnesia and recovered memory, terrorism and expectations of a happy ending play in representing children under fire?
