CFP: Red Feather Journal [children's media culture] (Dec. 15)

Because sometimes comics are just for kids! --Gene

CFP: The premier issue of Red Feather Journal, an online, international, interdisciplinary journal of children's media culture. The first issue will be published February 1, 2010.

Red Feather Journal facilitates an international dialogue among scholars and professionals of the intersections between the child image and the conception of childhood, children's material culture, children and politics, the child body, and any other conceptions of the child within local, national, and global contexts. The journal invites critical and/or theoretical examination of the child image to further our understanding of the consumption, circulation, and representation of the child throughout the world's visual mediums.

The journal welcomes submissions that examine a broad range of medias: children's film, Hollywood film, international film, Television, the Internet, print resources, art, or any other visual medium.

Some sample topics include, but are certainly not limited to:
  • studies of images of children of color
  • child as commodity
  • images of children in Africa, Asia, Middle East, South America, etc.
  • political uses of the child image
  • children in film
  • children in advertising
  • visual adaptations of children's literary works
  • child welfare images
  • children and war
  • or any other critical examination of the child image in a variety of visual mediums
Red Feather Journal is published twice a year, in February and September, and adheres to the MLA citation system. Authors are welcome to submit articles in other citations systems, with the understanding that, upon acceptance, conversion to MLA is a condition of publication.

Interested contributors, please submit the paper, an abstract, and a brief biography as attachments in Word to debbieo[at]

Deadline for submissions for the premier issue is December 15th, 2009.
