Jahrbuch Flucht und Migration Cover

The introduction to Seriality and Texts for Young People: The Compulsion to Repeat edited by Mavis Reimer, Nyala Ali, Deanna England, and Melanie Dennis Unrau, a 2014 collection of essays based on a symposium hosted by the Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures in 2011, has been updated and published in the Jahrbuch der Gesellschaft für Kinder- und Jugendliteraturforschung.

The inaugural issue of the new Jahrbuch der Gesellschaft für Kinder- und Jugendliteraturforschung (Yearbook of the German Children’s Literature Research Society [GKJF]) succeeds the print annual journal Kinder- und Jugendliteraturforschung (1995-2015) in a fundamentally revised form. As the GKJF’s response to the rapid development of digital culture(s) and reflecting its open, democratic attitude towards use of knowledge resources, the Yearbook is now published as an online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal.
