Western Migrations, The Halcyon Series - Manuscripts Needed
Ever since Frederick Jackson Turner, migration has been a central theme in the scholarly study and popular imagination of the American West. Successive generations have brought their own questions to this long-fascinating subject. "Western Migrations" seeks to showcase today's scholarly approaches.
The Nevada Humanities Committee and the University of Nevada Press will publish "Western Migrations" in 2001. Since 1979, Halcyon has published articles accessible to a range of readers in the public humanities.
Manuscripts are welcome from a variety of disciplines. Contributions might explore (but are not limited to): migration into, within, and out of the West; the significance of gender, ethnicity, race, religion, and economics in migration; historical and contemporary experiences of migration; and migration in popular culture, literature, and art.
Manuscripts typically run no more than 25 double-spaced pages. Submit three copies of the manuscript. Because Halcyon employs blind peer review, author information (name, address, phone number, and email) should appear only on the cover sheet. The deadline for receipt of manuscripts is April 3, 2000. Prospective contributors may query the editor.
