Jeunesse LogoJeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures seeks academic reviews to be published in our upcoming Special Issue on Borders (Winter 2019). Reviews will be due September 1, 2019.

Jeunesse publishes two types of academic reviews:

  1. Standard academic reviews of a single monograph or anthology in the 1500-2000 word range.
  2. Longer academic reviews in the 3500-4000 word range of groupings of texts that have in common a focus on one particular theme, genre, or issue.

As such, we seek reviews of texts with the following themes, requesting that authors take into consideration the overall issue’s theme of “borders” in their review:

  • Immigration, migration, and diaspora
  • Death, grief, and loss
  • Sexuality and Gender
  • Embodiment and bodies
  • Generations and aging

The full list of the texts available to review within these thematic categories is available on our website here:

Please send expressions of interest along with a brief statement of disciplinary affiliations and relevant research to with the subject line “Book Reviews – Borders.”
