Kristine Alexander holds the Canada Research Chair in Child and Youth Studies at the University of Lethbridge, where she is also Associate Professor of History and Co-Director of the Institute for Child and Youth Studies (I-CYS). She is the author of the award-winning book Guiding Modern Girls: Girlhood, Empire, and Internationalism in the 1920s and 1930s (UBC Press, 2017), as well as multiple articles and chapters about age as an analytical category, armed conflict, the emotions, and the production of knowledge with and about young people. Her scholarship uses transnational history and the history of childhood and youth to propose new ways of analyzing and imagining individual lives and broader social structures of power, hierarchy, and violence.
