Special Issue: Energy in Pennsylvania History
Guest Edited by Brian Black and Donna Rilling (October 2015)
The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography is issuing a call for articles for a special issue of the magazine on energy development and use in Pennsylvania history scheduled for an October 2015 publication.
The editors seek submissions of the following two sorts.
Scholarly Articles: The editors seek proposals for scholarly articles (25–35 pages, double spaced) featuring new research on significant episodes in Pennsylvania’s development, harvest, or application of energy resources. Articles can focus on labor, industry, or environmental topics, as they connect to the human application of energy. Selections will be made based on the quality of the submission and with an eye toward representing the diversity of research in energy history/studies. In addition, articles are sought that place regional stories within larger patterns or transitions in humans use of energy.
Favorite Sources/Hidden Gems: The editors seek proposals for short articles (250–750 words) featuring favorite sources/hidden gems highlighting some aspect of energy in Pennsylvania history. We invite articles focusing on both written and non-written sources, including but not limited to diaries, manuscript collections, novels, government documents, photographs, museum artifacts, and monuments. These items may or may not be found in the state, but all featured items will serve to illuminate some aspect of how Pennsylvanians experienced energy.
Submission details: Submissions should be addressed to Tamara Gaskell, Editor, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107 or, by e-mail, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guest editors: Potential contributors are encouraged to consult with one of the two guest editors for this issue of the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography. Brian C. Black at Penn State Altoona can be reached at email@example.com. Donna Rilling at SUNY Stony Brook can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submissions: January 6, 2014.
