Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures


About Jeunesse

Volume 13, Issue 1

Summer 2021

Special Issue on Laughter


Housed in the Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures (CRYTC) and supported by the University of Winnipeg, Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures is an interdisciplinary, scholar-led, refereed academic journal. Our mandate is to provide a forum for research and discussion on 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. The focus of the journal is on 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. Jeunesse was formerly Canadian Children’s Literature / Littérature canadienne pour la jeunesse.
