|Abstract:||Early activism by groups representing American citizens living abroad was motivated by parents' concerns about the citizenship status of children born outside the United States. In this essay I discuss a 1971-2 letterwriting campaign which involved American parents speaking on behalf of the rights of their minor children in a way that facilitated a simultaneous looking forward into the child's future, and looking backward to the parent's origins. Thus parents' representations of the child-citizen positioned them as agents of both nostalgia and futurity within the American family abroad. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.|
