Summary
"This is a comparative study of how girlhoods were conceived in Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand literatures and print cultures from their colonial infancy to the development of district national identities and literatures. The authors examine representations of colonial girls as adaptations of British imperial femininity and show how these literatures formulate a transnational feminine ideal. Drawing on books, magazines, school papers and readers, the authors develop a new history of colonial girlhoods that shows how girlhood in these emerging nations reflects the unique political,social, and cultural contexts of each nation and their differing relationships to Empire."--
