Middle West Review CFP – New digital journal on Midwest history

The official announcement by the journal organizers is below. -ed

The *Middle West Review *is a peer-reviewed digital journal housed at the University of Iowa. Its editorial board and editorial reviewers come from academic and nonacademic institutions throughout the Midwest, Canada, and beyond. We invite submissions across all scholarly disciplines–as well as from outside academia–that explore the meanings of the Midwest in the realms of politics, culture, society, and history. These submissions can
take the form of short essays (350 to 500 words), longer features (at least 1,000 words and up to 5,000 words), think pieces, reflections on current events, book reviews, review essays, traditional research articles, interviews, poetry, prose, photo essays, or multimedia projects, broadly conceived. Through these media–and the discussion they will stimulate–we aim to assist in the revitalization of midwestern history as a field of scholarly inquiry and thereby disrupt normative understandings of this vital and vibrant American region. In order to promote an active discussion and an ongoing conversation about the Midwest in an increasingly fast-paced electronic world, the editors plan to adhere to procedures which assure a rigorous but prompt review process for all submissions.

CFP: Cultural Crossings: Production, Consumption, and Reception across the Canada-U.S. Border

The Leverhulme Trust-funded Culture and the Canada-US Border international research network is pleased to invite proposals for papers or panels addressing topics related to cultural production, consumption, and reception across the Canada-US border. The 49th parallel has been considered by many Canadian nationalists to symbolize Canada’s cultural independence from the United States, with attendant anxieties about how an “undefended” border might fail to safeguard Canadian culture adequately. This conference seeks to probe the implications for the production, consumption, and reception of literature, film, television, music, theatre, and visual art in relation to the Canada-US border. We encourage analysis of cultural texts, phenomena, and industries both in terms of how they might operate differently in Canada and the United States and the ways in which they might straddle, or ignore, the border altogether. We invite proposals on both contemporary and historical cultural texts and contexts.

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.
