For almost eighteen years, JACYL has provided a forum for scholars in
African children's and youth literatures to share their ideas and findings
and promote the growth and development of scholarship in the genre.
We are interested in receiving essays in all aspects of children’s and
youth literatures in Africa and in the African Diaspora. Case studies
illustrating the successful use of children’s and youth literature in
indigenous African languages and the like are welcome.

The following is a list of some areas you might like to address:
• New directions in African children’s literatures
• African Children’s literature and the media
• Storytelling and African children’s literature
• African Children’s literature in African languages
• Online research in African children’s and youth literatures
• African children’s literature in the primary/elementary school.
• African children’s literature in the high school
• African children’s literature in colleges and universities.
• Interdisciplinary nature of African children’s and youth
literatures.
• Research into African children’s and youth literatures in English,
French, Spanish, and in indigenous African languages.
• History, Roots, or Ancestry in African Children’s and Youth
literatures.
• African roots of world children’s literatures.
• African children’s and youth literature and AIDS.
Please note that this list is by no means exhaustive, and we welcome

the African diaspora and in the international/global community.
