CFP: Fall 2013 issue of Red Feather Journal,
Deadline: October 30, 2013

Red Feather 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 visual mediums. Red Journal welcomes submissions that examine the child image from a broad range of medias: children's film, Hollywood film, international film, television images of children or childhood, child images on the Internet, images of children/childhood in art, or images of children/childhood in any other visual medium. Some sample topics include, but are certainly not limited to: child image and/in social media, gender and child images, images of children of color; child as commodity; political uses of the child image; children in film and/or television; children in advertising; visual adaptations of children's literary works; child welfare images; children and war; the child in photography, or any other critical examination of the child image in a variety of visual mediums.

Red Feather Journal is a peer-reviewed, academic journal that facilitates an international dialogue among scholars and professionals through vigorous discussion 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. Red Feather Journal welcomes international submissions.

Red Feather Journal is published twice a year, in March and November, 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.
