Call for submissions: USAbroad journal – America Unfinished

USAbroad – Journal of American History and Politics is the first Italian academic journal published annually by an editorial team of early-career scholars and entirely dedicated to the study of U.S. history and politics. The journal pays particular attention to recent historiographic trends (Atlantic and global history, transnational history) and multidisciplinary approaches, which intermingle history with social and political sciences. The aim of USAbroad is to offer postgraduates and early-career scholars the opportunity to publish innovative and groundbreaking research that investigates any aspect of U.S. history and politics.

For the year 2017, USAbroad invites potential contributors—from Italy, Europe, and around the world—to submit papers that discuss the idea of "America Unfinished" from different perspectives. With this expression, we are pointing to the never-ending process of social and political reinvention of the American nation regarding the following main subjects:

- Government and institutional developments
- Cultural heritage and political thought
- Foreign policy and international relations
- Economic processes
- Race and gender relations
- Class relations

Suitable essays should engage with the twofold meaning of the term "unfinished", which recalls both the lights (the constantly evolving ability of American citizens and government to reinvent themselves in the face of new historical, national, and international challenges, keeping the promise for a better future) and shadows (racism, sexism, social hierarchies, economic inequality; the "end of the American century", the post-American world, etc.) of the American nation and nationalism, based on constantly striving for a more "perfectible" Union.

We particularly encourage proposals from Italian PhD students as well as early-career scholars. Applicants are asked to submit an abstract of approximately 500 words, along with a résumé including their main publications, by March 30, 2017.

All abstracts should be sent by e-mail to usabroad@unibo.it

By April 17, 2017 applicants will be notified of the editorial team's selection. Please note that a final version of all accepted essays must be submitted by July 16, 2017.

 
CFP: Special Issue of "Romantisme"

New Scales of Regionalist Writing (1820-1914). Special Issue of Romantisme (Spring 2018)

https://www.cairn.info/revue-romantisme.htm

Regionalism has long been a contested label. From its birth as "local color" at the end of the eighteenth-century to its resurgence in, and as, modernism at the turn into the twentieth-century, its defense and illustration of local customs, local dialects and of a particular sense of place has been read alternatively as a conservationist move, an "anti-modern" advocation of essentialist identities, as a capitalistic avatar of the commodification of particularities (Brodhead) and as deterritorialized critique or a radical attempt at deconstructing the norms of place, gender, and literary genres (Pryse and Fetterley).
