Adolescent Journalism in the 19th Century

1 min read

An extensive collection of amateur publications that were written, edited, and published primarily by young people, aged 12-20, during the second half of the 19th century, Amateur Newspapers from the American Antiquarian Society features tens of thousands of issues, and includes editorials, original short fiction, essays, poetry, and more. It provides an abundance of resources for researchers looking to make connections with the era, and provides compelling insights into the ways teens and young adults viewed their hometowns, their country, and the world around them in the 19th century.

Take a look at an infographic highlighting several publications within this one-of-a-kind collection:

  1. A fascinating blog post and infographic. Thanks for publishing! I wonder if similar publications appeared in nineteenth-century Britain and whether Gale offers access to such examples.
