Research on Diversity in Youth Literature
Research on Diversity in Youth Literature (RDYL), a peer-reviewed, online, and open-access journal focused on issues of diversity, equity, social justice, inclusion, and intersectionality in youth literature, culture, and media. It is co-edited by iSchool Associate Professor Sarah Park Dahlen and Sonia Alejandra Rodríguez, associate professor of English at LaGuardia Community College, City University of New York. RDYL published its inaugural issue in 2018. The initial four volumes are available on the St. Catherine University RDYL website; subsequent volumes are hosted on the Illinois IOPN platform. RDYL publishes two issues per year: a guest-edited, themed issue in the summer and a general issue in the winter. Each issue typically includes peer-reviewed articles, book reviews, cover art, and a topical forum.
