To coincide with the launch of its new website, the American and Canadian Studies journal 49th Parallel is issuing a call for papers.
49th Parallel is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary e-journal devoted to American and Canadian Studies. Since 1999, it has sought to transcend traditional boundaries and promote innovative and challenging academic work.
The editors wish to encourage 5,000-7,000 word submissions that cover the broad range of subjects that typically fall within American Studies as well as articles of a more interdisciplinary nature.
Possible subject areas include: literature; history; cultural studies; politics; film; foreign relations; photography.
This multidisciplinary approach aims to promote a broad spectrum of academic debate, and to utilise the multimedia capabilities offered to an e-based journal. In this sense 49th Parallel also hopes to encourage traditional academic essays alongside the use of video and photo academic texts.
49th Parallel - which gets its name from the U.S.-Canadian border - is predominately a North American Studies Journal. However, we also want to encourage articles that engage with wider notions of America, so welcome submissions concerning Latin and Central America.
We are also happy to receive submissions from postgraduates and early career scholars as well as established academics.
To ensure the highest academic quality, all articles are fully peer reviewed. For full submission guidelines please visit our website http://www.49thparallel.bham.ac.uk
If you have any other queries or wish to submit an article please email the editors 49thParallel@bham.ac.uk
A list of books available for review can also be found on our website http://www.49thparallel.bham.ac.uk/submissions.htm#books
