    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:

    • cultural functions and representations of “the child”
    • technology and childhood/technologies of childhood
    • youth and popular musical cultures and scenes
    • diaspora and cultural memory
    • girls, girlhood, and girls’ cultures
    • discourses of childhood and youth in films for, about, and by young people
    • youthful activities queering heteronormative and homonormative ways of being
    • youth cultures challenging notions of legality

    The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2017.

  • "Connected Learning: New Media Ecology and Young People" A Lecture by Dr. Mimi Ito, MacArthur Foundation Chair in Digital Media and Learning at the University of California, Irvine

    2013-09-23

    Date: October 9, 2013
    Time: 12:00PM - 1:30PM
    Place: Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, University of Winnipeg

    Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures is pleased to co-sponsor "Connected Learning: New Media Ecology and Young People," a lecture by Dr. Mimi Ito, MacArthur Foundation Chair in Digital Media and Learning at the University of California, Irvine. This event is also sponsored by the UW President’s Office, Dean of Arts, the Department of Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications, and the Department of English.

    The Internet, digital media production tools, portable media, and social gaming environments are part of broad-based shifts in how we express ourselves, produce and access knowledge, and connect with others. This new media ecology can be a powerful driver of meaningful, demand-driven, and socially connected learning, but in our research, we found that very few young people, parents, and educators were taking advantage of this potential. Really tapping into the learning potential of today’s new media environment requires building more robust connections between formal and informal learning environments, and across social, recreational, and academic activities. This talk will describe what research in the MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Initiative has taught us about the some of the shifts in how young people are learning and engaging with new media, and areas of opportunity for supporting learning keyed to a networked age.
