Abstract

For the Record -- This year marks the fortieth anniversary of the inaugural publication of Canadian Children's Literature / Littérature canadienne pour la jeunesse (CCL/LCJ), the predecessor journal to Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures. The number forty is used to signify a "common duration of critical situations" within traditions of symbolic and rhetorical uses of numbers, the successful completion of which marks a transition to a new phase for an individual or group (Buttrick et al. 565). This year also marks the end of my tenure as lead editor of Jeunesse. For both symbolic and personal reasons, then, this fortieth anniversary seems an appropriate time to look backward at where we have been as a journal and forward to where we can see ourselves going in the future. An outline of the history of CCL/LCJ from its beginnings in 1975 at the University of Guelph to its move to the University of Winnipeg in 2005 is recorded on the archival website of that journal, located at . As long-serving CCL/LCJ co-editor Mary Henley Rubio notes there, the founding editors--John Robert Sorfleet, Elizabeth Waterston, Glenys Stow, and Rubio--understood themselves to be filling a major gap in the information available
