Red Feather is an online, international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for scholars and professionals to interrogate representations of children in film, television, Cyberspace, video gaming or any other visual medium where the image of the child is featured. Red Feather facilitates an international dialogue among scholars and professionals through vigorous discussion of the intersections between the child and the conception of childhood, children's material culture, children and politics, the child body, and any other interactions with the child image within local, national, and global contexts.The journal invites critical and/or theoretical examination of the child image to further our understanding of the circulation, consumption, and representation of the child throughout the world's visual mediums. Some sample topics include, but are certainly not limited to: studies of images of children of color; child as commodity; images of children in Africa, Asia, Middle East; political uses of the child image; children in film around the world; children in advertising; visual adaptations of children's literary works; child welfare; children and war; or any other critical examination of the child image in a variety of visual mediums.
