CFP – The Middle Ground Journal – “The Border in the Classroom: Approaches to Border Studies”

The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies Thematic Forum on “The Border in the Classroom: Approaches to Border Studies”

CALL FOR JOURNAL ARTICLES

Guest Editors: Benita Heiskanen and Andrae Marak

This thematic forum of The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies will explore the multiple meanings of borders within the classroom context. While the initial series of articles will focus on the borders between Mexico and the U.S., we welcome articles with a focus on the K-12, undergraduate, or graduate classroom setting from various geographic viewpoints. This on-going thematic forum will consist of three types of contributions:

• Research Articles (5,000-7,000 words)
• Case Studies (3,000-4,000 words)
• Book Reviews (800-1,000 words)

The articles may deal with either historical perspectives or contemporary issues, and we particularly encourage interdisciplinary and multi-methodological approaches to studies of borders.  Articles, studies, or book reviews that use borders as a comparison case or use borders more generally as a conceptual or theoretical tool are also welcome.
For research articles and case studies: please send max. 300-word abstracts, together with one-page CVs, to both editors. For suggestions on book reviews on recent border scholarship, please send max. 150-word abstracts, together with one-page CVs, to both editors. Please email all contributions for the initial installment of the forum to benita.heiskanen@gmail.com and amarak@govst.edu by January 30, 2013. The final articles will be due on May 30, 2013.

For general inquiries concerning this forum, please email benita.heiskanen@gmail.com.
