The Journal of Transport History (Manchester University Press) invites scholarly contributions that examine the historical relationship between transport and mobility and the natural environment for a proposed Special Issue of the Journal scheduled for December 2014 (vol 35 ). Contributions may be substantial library- and archive-based research essays of 8,000 words (including endnotes and Abstract), or shorter pieces (1,500 words) for the Journal's 'Surveys & Speculations' and its 'Exhibitions & Museum Reviews' sections.
The Special Issue will be guest edited Thomas Zeller, author of 'Driving Germany: the Landscape of the German Autobahn, 1930-1970' (2007). Together with JTH editor Gordon Pirie, he will select papers based on their originality and scholarly rigour, but will also strive for broad coverage of periods, themes, continents and transport modes. Papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. Conceptually progressive research is especially encouraged. A second call will be made in June 2013. Prospective authors should contact Thomas Zeller (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Gordon Pirie (email@example.com).
