 CCL: Canadian Children's Literature/ Littérature canadienne pour la
jeunesse is moving to the University of Winnipeg as of January, 2005, with
Perry Nodelman of the Department of English as Editor and Mavis Reimer of
the Department of English and Anne Rusnak of the Department of French
Studies and German Studies as Associate Editors. The new editors are now
accepting submissions.

CCL: Canadian Children's Literature/ Littérature canadienne pour la jeunesse
is a bilingual refereed academic journal that advances knowledge and
understanding of texts of Canadian children's literature in a range of media
in both English and French. CCL publishes sound theoretically informed
scholarship about all aspects of texts for Canadian children in both of
Canada's official languages. The journal focuses on texts for and about
Canadian children of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds both in terms of
how the texts function culturally and ideologically in the lives of Canadian
children and adults and of how they represent a specific kind of literature
requiring consideration in terms of their artistry and of literary and
cultural history and theory. CCL seeks articles from specialists in English
and /or French literature, theatre and drama, media studies, literary
theory, education, information science, childhood and cultural studies, and
related disciplines on any and all texts for Canadian children in a range of
contexts: the economic and cultural aspects of their production and
consumption, the history and nature of children's literature and culture
nationally and internationally (including discussions of Canadian texts in
relation to those published elsewhere), and literature and literary and
cultural history and theory generally. CCL also seeks articles that explore
the practical implications of the research it publishes for librarians,
teachers, and other practitioners who work with child readers.

Articles may be submitted as attachments in Word or RTF format to:

Alternately, submit three copies on paper, along with a stamped,
self-addressed return envelope, to:
Department of English
University of Winnipeg
515 Portage Avenue
Winnipeg MB R3L 1V9

All submissions should conform to MLA style. Since papers are vetted blind,
the name and contact information of the author should be removed from the
submission and appear on a separate page with your contact information
(including phone number and e-mail address). Decisions about submitted
papers should be made within three months.
