ABSTRACT. Childhoods and borders are intrinsically connected. Childhoods are bound to cross boundaries, encounter borders and engage in the act of ‘crossings’. This paper theorizes how children cross boundaries, and how their childhoods are therefore constantly re-examined, re-negotiated and re-conceptualized at any geographical, or ideological context. This paper deals with the discourses of subjugation and dominance that govern childhoods. It explores the subversiveness of foreignness encountered in childhood, and the links between the adult and child worlds. pp. 51–60

Keywords: childhood; border; subjugation; dominance; foreignness
