JOCPC: Journal of Children in Popular Culture
contact email: 

JOCPC is now accepting articles for the Fall 2022 issue focusing on children in the political sphere. We have kept the theme open-ended and invite works across a wide range of disciplines where researchers are addressing the presence and/or representation of children occupying roles of leadership, activism, and advocacy. This may also include an investigation of the ways children and childhood is variously arrogated.

 JOCPC is an open-access, online, international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for scholars and professionals to interrogate representations of the child in popular culture. The journal facilitates an international dialogue among scholars and professionals through vigorous discussion of the intersections between the child, the conception of childhood, and any other interactions with the child in the context of popular culture.

 JOCPC invites critical and/or theoretical examination of the child to further our understanding of the circulation, consumption, and representation of the child throughout a variety of mediums within popular discourse. All disciplines are welcome and international submissions are encouraged.

 Submissions are to be between 5,000 and 7,000 words, including notes.

 The journal is also accepting reviews for books, films, and television. Contact for more information and review submissions.
