The scientific journal „Paidia and Literature” was founded in 2018 as an annual journal focusing on literature targeted towards children and youth. Initially, until 2019, the journal was associated with Chair of Polish Language and Literature Teaching Methodology at the Silesian University. Up until then, the topic scope of the journal mostly included the place and role of children and youth literature in Polish language education process. Since 2020, the journal „Paidia and Literature” is associated with Interdisciplinary Center of Humanist Education Research, which enabled to broaden the journal’s formula, making it a multidisciplinary platform for research on children’s and youth literature. The addressed concepts or suggested methodologies reach beyond a classic educational approach, reflecting contemporary humanist ideas. Such formula enables to present a wide view of issues concentrated on humanities, childhood, literature and education.
