520 An examination of the Mexican government's use of children
to advance their state-formation goals following the
Mexican Revolution, and the experience of children during
520 During the first two decades following the Mexican
Revolution, children in the country gained unprecedented
consideration as viable cultural critics, social actors,
and subjects of reform. Not only did they become central
to the reform agenda of the revolutionary nationalist
government; they were also the beneficiaries of the
largest percentage of the national budget. While most
historical accounts of postrevolutionary Mexico omit
discussion of how children themselves experienced and
perceived the sudden onslaught of resources and attention,
Elena Jackson Albarrán, in Seen and Heard in Mexico,
places children's voices at the center of her analysis.
Albarrán draws on archived records of children's
experiences in the form of letters, stories, scripts,
drawings, interviews, presentations, and homework
assignments to explore how Mexican childhood, despite the
hopeful visions of revolutionary ideologues, was not a
uniform experience set against the monolithic backdrop of
cultural nationalism, but rather was varied and uneven.
Moving children from the aesthetic to the political realm,
Albarrán situates them in their rightful place at the
center of Mexico's revolutionary narrative by examining
the avenues through which children contributed to ideas
about citizenship and nation.
