Comparative American Studies: An International Journal
Comparative American Studies: Call for Papers
Published quarterly since its founding in 2003, Comparative American Studies is an international journal that extends scholarly debates about American Studies beyond the geographical boundaries of the United States; repositioning discussions about American culture within an international comparative framework. Overseen by an international board of distinguished academics and indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Comparative American Studies is at the forefront of American Studies research.
The main disciplines covered in the journal are: literature, film, popular culture, photography and the visual arts. Attention is also given to history, the social sciences and politics, particularly insofar as these fields have an impact on cultural texts.
Submissions on the following topics are particularly welcome:
American Studies, ‘post-truth’
New American visual cultures
Nature, environment and ecology in American Studies
American poetry, poetics and culture
Comparative American Studies welcomes essay submissions of 5,000-7,000 words for consideration for publication in the journal, as well shorter ‘conversation pieces’, comments, responses to essays published in the journal, interviews, and reviews and media analysis. Papers for consideration should be submitted electronically as a Word document to the Editor, Nick Selby (N.Selby@uea.ac.uk).
