where are the children?  
"The missing children of early modern religion"


I'm so glad I follow the Oxford University Press blog via email, because great tidbits like this make their way into my inbox. I'm especially interested - in my dilettante way, of course - in finding out more about early modern children, since I wrote that presentation on childhood and A Midsummer Night's Dream, and of course it's also why I love children's/YA historical fiction, where authors use their imaginations to make children the focus of their stories.

(Last week I started reading a scholarly book on early modern girlhood - I don't know why I thought I'd get anywhere with it, what with finals just around the corner, but I discovered it in the library catalog, after having read the author's dissertation abstract sometime last year, and pounced. I also recently discovered that the authors of The Tudor Tailor, a guide for costumers that I desperately want even though I can hardly tell one end of a needle from the other, have just published a similar book called The Tudor Child. Sometimes these things come in waves.)

That does sound good. I like Elizabeth's grandmother.

Yes - good for her! And for Elizabeth, too.
