JOCPC: Journal of Children in Popular Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2023

JOCPC is now accepting article submissions for the Fall 2023 issue focusing on the broad theme of the mechanized child. We have kept the theme open-ended and invite works across a wide range of disciplines where researchers are exploring representations of the intersection between the child figure, childhood and mechanization. This may include robotics, automatons, cyborgs, AI, VR, and other emerging technologies, both historical and future forward, real and fictional, and how these are used by, to, on and for children. Born alongside new and emerging technologies, children have an innate fluency with new technologies that often leave their adult counterparts behind, reinforcing the notion of children as symbols of futurity.
