Children’s Literature, Culture, and Cognition

This book series is peer reviewed and indexed in: Scopus

The overarching aim of the CLCC series is to promote new theoretical approaches in the realm of children’s literature research on the one hand, and to particularly encourage a non-Anglo-American focus, bringing in exciting research from other areas, on the other hand. In addition, it will present research from many linguistic areas to an international audience, reinforce interaction between research conducted in many different languages and present high standard research on the basis of secondary sources in a number of languages and based in a variety of research traditions. Basically the book series should encourage a cross- and interdisciplinary approach on the basis of literary studies, media studies, comparative studies, reception studies, literacy studies, cognitive studies, and linguistics. The series includes monographs and essay collections which are international in scope and intend to stimulate innovative research with a focus on children’s literature (including other media), children’s culture and cognition, thus encouraging interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in this expanding field.
The series welcomes submissions. Proposals for the series will be reviewed by two anonymous reviewers and the series editors. When accepted the full submitted manuscript will also be reviewed by two anonymous reviewers. Book proposals, preferably structured along the lines indicated in our Guidelines for Book Proposals, can be sent to the series editors or to the responsible Benjamins acquisition editor, Ms Esther Roth (esther.roth at
