 2. Longer academic reviews in the 3500-4000 word range of groupings of
    texts that have in common a focus on one particular theme, genre, or

As such, we seek reviews of texts with the following themes published since 2019, requesting that authors take into consideration the overall issue’s theme of “laughter” in their review:

  * Laughter and community: inclusion and isolation
  * Satire/parody in children’s media; dual audiences
  * Laughter as expression; laughter and affect
  * Laughter in story, film, TV, video games, vlogs, and other media
    designed for or created and/or consumed by young people
