The Journal of Backcountry Studies seeks articles for possible publication. Please send proposals or questions to Mr. Casey Musselman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Journal of Backcountry Studies is a refereed scholarly journal on the Internet focused on the colonial history of the Backcountry - the rural corridor that stretches from southern Pennsylvania to Augusta, Ga.
The study of the Backcountry is an inter-disciplinary enterprise. Beginning in 1985 and most recently in 2004, a series of ten major scholarly conferences on the Backcountry has brought together Historians, Geographers, Ethnographers, Public Historians, Librarians, practitioners in Material Culture, and Historic Preservationists. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro-Old Salem Conference on “The North Carolina Backcountry and Public History, in 2004, considered and endorsed the proposal to create an e-Journal on the Backcountry. Its title indicates our kinship with the older Journal of Appalachian Studies, the overlapping region to our north and west.
The Journal of Backcountry Studies intends to honor and preserve this tradition. Our constituency includes academics and non-academic students of local history; schools, colleges, universities, libraries, archives, and churches.
