The Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies at the AAA (2016)

Publish your book on children, childhood, adolescence and/or youth with the Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies!

The Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies is dedicated to increasing our understanding of children and childhoods throughout the world, reflecting a perspective that highlights cultural dimensions of the human experience. The series, now edited by Jill E. Korbin and EJ Sobo, seeks proposals for books that will make important contributions to the study of children and childhoods, adolescence, and youth.

Jill and Elisa will be at the upcoming AAA meetings, as will the series’ Executive Editor, Kim Guinta. If you have a proposal that you would like to discuss, please stop by the RUTGERS book display at your convenience and ask for Kimberly Guinta.

If you are not coming to the AAA Meetings, but have a book proposal you would like to discuss, please get in touch with us by e-mail that clearly articulates the unique contributions your book will make. This should include brief responses to the 5 points below:

  • To what conversations or debates in the literature does the manuscript speak?

  • What are the manuscript’s  novel findings?
  • What are the manuscript’s innovative features?
  • Any other points that make this an important manuscript for the field of childhood studies.
