Call for Book Review Editors: JHCY

The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth is seeking scholars to serve as book review editor(s). 

JHCY is the only international journal devoted to the historical study of childhood and youth. Covering all time periods and geographical areas, JHCY is now established as the major publication that examines age as a category of analysis as it intersects with gender, race and sexuality, and ideas and practices of childhood, and the lives of children in different historical contexts. Celebrating its 14th volume published by Johns Hopkins University Press, the journal has a tradition of publishing rigorously researched, peer-reviewed articles on children, childhood and youth around the world.  

The journal publishes three volumes per year. Each issue contains 5 or 6 articles and around 8-10 book reviews. The new book review editor(s) will liaise with book publishers and the JHCY editor. The position begins August 2021 (negotiable). Questions about the position and formal expressions of interest should be submitted to Linda Mahood [lmahood@uoguelph.ca]. Deadline. July 15, 2021
