Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures is an interdisciplinary, scholar-led, 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.

Articles may be submitted directly to this website or as attachments in Word or RTF format to:

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 (9th edition) and be free of citation software formatting. 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 150-200–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.
