Abstract

Wartime emotional and moral conditioning of children and youth, and their cultivation as future citizens, began before the First World War and continued long afterward. The article examines children’s interactions with material culture, and some material produced by children themselves, in order to understand their emotional formations and the emotional frontiers they traversed. The analysis raises the question of tensions of belonging and the contingency of identity amid shifting national and imperial contexts, followed by an examination of styles of training for the purpose of belonging and the strong tendency for pedagogical material to focus on types of ‘service’.
