CFP: Creative Children and Children’s Culture Collection

Dear Colleagues,

Victoria Ford Smith and I are putting together an edited collection on cultural productions by children, theorizing children as creators and exploring children’s cultural production as a crucial, albeit often understudied, area of children’s literature, media, and cultural studies.

We have most of the contributors in place, but we are seeking 2 to 3 additional chapters to round out the collection–specifically chapters on performance, music, visual art, digital media, film, television, and/or handicrafts from any time period, with special attention to BIPOC children. Please note that we are seeking work on children, not teenagers.

If interested in potentially participating, send a proposal of 100-200 words by May 1st to We plan to make decisions by May 15th in the hopes that first drafts of chapters will be submitted by late fall 2021.

Feel free to share with interested colleagues.

Please direct questions to Pete Kunze and Victoria Ford Smith at

Thank you for your time and consideration. Wishing you the very best–
