    Abstract:
    CFP / Essay Contest Empire and Contemporary Children’s Literature Empire Studies, an open-access online magazine, invites essays for a special issue on specific topics within a broad consideration of “Empire and Contemporary Children’s Literature.” We are looking for student-friendly, jargon-free essays, 1600-2000 word count. The winning essay will receive a prize of $300, three runners-up will be awarded $100. All four selected essays will be published on the Empire Studies site. Each feature will also include an interview with the author, an Editor’s Introduction to the essay, and lesson plans. For our purposes, “literature” encompasses both written fiction and film, young adult as well as juvenile (Star Wars and Harry Potter included). We hope to receive essays which will engage students with patterns of empire in works familiar to them. The authors retain copyright over their work, Empire Studies retains the right to post the essay on the Empire Studies web site and to house features in such open-access repositories as Humanities Commons. Deadline: October 1, 2019 www.empirestudies.com
