Childhood, Youth and the Mixed-Race Question
Chapter 9 ‘Raising Eurasia’ shows that as Europeans used didactic visions of childhood to draw boundaries more firmly around themselves this only served to make the ‘problem’ of the Eurasian child more visible. The ambiguous, crisis-ridden figure of the Eurasian child formed a counterpoint to ideals of the child as a symbolically coherent, discontinuous presence. Eurasian children compromised efforts to yoke dichotomous, racialised models of childhood and youth to hierarchies of power. They raised powerful questions of imperial responsibility. Age proved critical to the quite different responses to these questions elaborated in British and French-governed centres to the end of the period.
