JHCY Call for Submissions

As recently announced by the organization, the Society for the History of Childhood and Youth has selected Julia M. Gossard and Holly N. S. White to serve as co-editors of the Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth (JHCY) starting July 2024! 

The editors are excited to call for new submissions for upcoming issues of the JHCY!  

JHCY is an international, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal that explores the development of childhood and youth cultures, as well as the experiences of young people across diverse times and places. 

Early career authors, first-time authors, and those new to the history of childhood and youth who are interested in examining youth, childhood, and age as analytical categories should consider submitting materials that fit submission guidelines. Those working on topics of intersectionality and childhood including (but not limited to) race, gender, sexuality, sexual identity, class, (dis)ability, and other identity categories are strongly encouraged to submit their work.

Additionally, those who have presented at recent SHCY conferences are especially encouraged to submit articles on their pathbreaking research. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, with issues published each winter, spring, and summer. 

Contact the editors with any questions: JHCYEditors@gmail.com
