CfP – Journal of Children and Media

The Journal of Children and Media is an international interdisciplinary and multi-method peer-reviewed publication that provides a space for discussion by scholars and professionals from around the world and across theoretical and empirical traditions who are engaged in the study of media in the lives of children and adolescents.  It is a unique intellectual forum for the exchange of information about all forms and contents of media in regards to all aspects of children’s lives, and especially in three complementary realms: Children as consumers of media, representations of children in the media, and media organizations and productions for children as well as by them.

It is committed to the facilitation of international dialogue among researchers and professionals, through discussion of interaction between children and media in local, national, and global contexts; concern for diversity issues; a critical and empirical inquiry informed by a variety of theoretical and empirical approaches; and dedication to ensuring the social relevance of the academic knowledge it produces to the cultural, political, and personal welfare of children around the world.

Vikki Katz and Amy Jordan, the co-editors of the JOCAM, and Vicky Rideout, the Review & Commentary section editor, invite you to visit the journal’s website for more information about the journal and submission instructions. Taylor & Francis, the publisher of JOCAM has been a strong supporter of CAM from its inception, sponsoring receptions and offering discounted subscriptions.
