Call for papers for Traversea Vol. 4

(Aug 01, 2014)

Traversea, a peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal is dedicated to the publication of research in transatlantic history. Transatlantic history pertains to the interconnectedness of human experience and cross-cultural encounters of Europe, Africa, and the Americas (North and South) from 1500 to the present. It is inherently interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative in approach and moves beyond the boundaries imposed by the concept of the nation state.

We invite graduate students and young scholars to submit manuscripts of original research for the "Independent Contributions" section. Deadline for consideration for Traversea 4 (2014) is November 1, 2014.

The editors invite submissions that are historical, geographical, anthropological, literary, sociological, and cartographic in nature and currently accept submissions written in English, French, Spanish, and German. The journal is composed of three sections: "Conference Presentations" (peer-reviewed), "Independent Contributions" (peer-reviewed) and “Perspectives” (non-peer-reviewed). Selected participants’ research papers from the Annual International Graduate Student Conference on Transatlantic History are considered for publication in the "Conference Presentations" section of Traversea.

All authors are asked to register accounts within the journal website traversea.uta.edu and use the provided upload area for the submission of their article. Please consult the "Author Guidelines" under "About" and "Submissions" for more information. If you have any questions email Christopher Malmberg at christopher.malmberg@mavs.uta.edu.
