Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures is an interdisciplinary, refereed academic journal, the mandate of which is to publish research on and to provide a forum for discussion about cultural productions for, by, and about young people. Our scope is international; while we have a special interest in Canada, we welcome submissions concerning all areas and cultures. We are especially interested in the cultural functions and representations of “the child." This can include children’s and young adult literature and media; young people’s material culture, including toys; digital culture and young people; historical and contemporary constructions, functions, and roles of “the child” and adolescents; and literature, art, and films by children and young adults. We welcome articles in both English and French.
Alternatively, submit three copies on paper, along with a stamped, self-addressed return envelope, to:
Heather Snell, Editor, Jeunesse
Centre for Research in Young People's Texts and Cultures
University of Winnipeg
515 Portage Avenue
Winnipeg MB R3B 2E9
All submissions should conform to MLA style. The name of the author should be removed from the submission and appear on a separate page along with contact information (including phone number and e-mail address) and a 100-word abstract.
Jeunesse has a green open access policy, which means our authors are permitted to place post-print publisher-version PDFs of their articles in their institutional repositories. Our editorials, forums, and reviews are immediately open access.

Call for Papers
Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures invites essays about any and all aspects of young people’s texts and cultures. While we are especially interested in publishing essays that approach young people’s texts and cultures from an interdisciplinary perspective – cultural studies, for example – we welcome essays that engage such texts and cultures from an historical, philosophical, sociological, geographical, museological, criminal justice, music, arts, literary, film, screen, or media studies perspective. By “texts” we mean everything from picture books to toys, comics, music, video games, and playgrounds.
Topics on which we are particularly keen to explore at this time include:
The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2017.
