This project aims to analyze the methods with which 19th century children’s periodicals cultivated and scripted ideal childhoods for their readers. This analysis was performed by examining reader correspondence (interactions between child readers and adult editors)in two magazines from the Nesbitt collection: a British periodical for girls, entitled The Girl’s Own Paper, and in an American periodical, St.Nicholas, that was written for children more broadly.
