Nordic Childhoods 1700–1960

From Folk Beliefs to Pippi Longstocking

This volume strengthens interest and research in the fields of both Childhood Studies and Nordic Studies by exploring conceptions of children and childhood in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden). Although some books have been written about the history of childhood in these countries, few are multidisciplinary, focus on this region as a whole, or are available in English. This volume contains essays by scholars from the fields of literature, history, theology, religious studies, intellectual history, cultural studies, Scandinavian studies, education, music, and art history. Contributors study the history of childhood in a wide variety of sources, such as folk and fairy tales, legal codes, religious texts, essays on education, letters, sermons, speeches, hymns, paintings, novels, and school essays written by children themselves. They also examine texts intended specifically for children, including text books, catechisms, newspapers, songbooks, and children’s literature. By bringing together scholars from multiple disciplines who raise distinctive questions about childhood and take into account a wide range of sources, the book offers a fresh and substantive contribution to the history of childhood in the Nordic countries between 1700 and 1960. The volume also helps readers trace the historical roots of the internationally recognized practices and policies regarding child welfare within the Nordic countries today and prompts readers from any country to reflect on their own conceptions of and commitments to children.

THE LOST MASTERPIECE FROM ASTRID LINDGREN’S CHILDREN’S CLASSIC Pippi Moves In marks the first time that the legendary Pippi Longstocking comics by the famed children’s author and creator Astrid Lindgren and Danish illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman will be published outside of Scandinavia in thirty years, as well as their first ever publication in English. The outspoken strong-girl with the carrot-colored pigtails and the mismatched socks has enthralled generations of children the world over with her fabulous exploits at Villa Villekulla, where she lives with her horse and monkey. Countless translations of the chapter books are available in more than sixty languages. Pippi is Sweden’s best-known children’s export, making it all the more remarkable that D+Q has discovered what will be a three-volume series. The comics are re-imaginings of the classic chapter book stories and were originally published in the Swedish magazine Humpty Dumpty in 1957–1959, a decade after the original books. The comics spotlight both Lindgren’s brilliant writing and Vang Nyman’s bold bright colors that seem presciently and eerily modern. The original illustrator for the chapter books, Vang Nyman was an avant-garde champion of the importance of children’s literature who insisted that art in children’s books needed to meet the same esthetic standards as art in any other medium. Sadly Vang Nyman never achieved international success, and tragically committed suicide in 1959 due to mental health issues, while Lindgren went on to become one of the world’s best-loved writers with more than 145 million books sold worldwide. Similar to D+Q’s 2005 unearthing of the Tove Jansson’s Moomin comic strip, which has more than 100,000 units in print, these mid-century classics are waiting to be discovered and enjoyed by the world’s legions of Pippi fans, both young and old.
