Journal of Childhood Education and Learning

Aims and scope

Journal of Childhood Education and Learning is an international refereed journal publishes quarterly online open access by KMF. The Journal aims to open space for publications related to the urgent, contested realities of globalized childhoods. It encourages submissions from a range of disciplines that engage with children’s increasingly interconnected worldwide spaces. Articles published in the journal advance alternative and experimental conceptualizations of childhood by integrating theoretical perspectives that extend beyond developmental or psychologized conceptualizations of childhood. Submissions draw upon feminist new materialist, poststructural, posthuman, and postdevelopmental perspectives, as well as Indigenous knowledges and other ways of knowing that are silenced. The journal holds a broad editorial emphasis, ranging from the publication of contributions from early childhood education and education to fields such as children’s geographies, anthropology of childhood, childhood studies, and sociology of childhood. Journal of Childhood Education and Learning orients itself toward the multidisciplinary work of childhood studies, which is concerned with children’s lifeworlds while also considering childhood within overarching politicized and globalized contexts.
