TABLE OF CONTENTS


Jeunesse 9.1 Cover

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.

Articles may be submitted directly to this website or as attachments in Word or RTF format to: jeunesse@uwinnipeg.ca.

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 Editors

 

Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures (http://www.jeunessejournal.ca) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, bilingual academic journal housed at the University of Winnipeg. The mandate of the journal is to publish research on and to provide a forum for discussion about cultural productions for, by, and about young people.

The journal is currently looking for editors who work in one or more of the following areas: queer studies, critical pedagogy, indigenous studies, geography, sociology, cultural theory, technology and digital texts, video games, and film and television. Duties and responsibilities include finding peer reviewers, assessing peer-review reports, preparing reports for the managing board, and substantive editing of accepted articles. At Jeunesse, substantive editing includes detailed assessment of the logic of the argument and comments on stylistic felicity.

While the positions are unpaid, there are considerable benefits to working as an editor of Jeunesse: editors help to shape the field of studies in young people’s texts and cultures internationally and to mentor emerging scholars, and will be offered the opportunity to participate in planning future directions of the journal. In addition, editors are entitled to request reference letters to aid in promotion and tenure from the lead Editor. For the most part, editors will work remotely, via e-mail. All editors will receive a free subscription to the journal.

Applicants should provide a statement of interest that outlines why they would like be an editor of Jeunesse, as well as an account of previous editing experience (if any) and a short curriculum vitae that showcases other relevant scholarly activities. Statements should clearly indicate that applicants are familiar with the journal.

The deadline for applications is July 15, 2017. Please send your applications and any inquiries to the Managing Editor, Larissa Wodtke (l.wodtke@uwinnipeg.ca).
