CFP: 49th Parallel: An Interdisciplinary Journal of
North American Studies (2/28/06; journal issue)

Call for journal submissions

Spring 2006: Open Issue

49th Parallel is an interdisciplinary e-journal of the
University of Birmingham (UK) devoted to American and
Canadian studies that looks to promote innovative and
challenging academic work. The journal takes its name
from the 1,270 mile border separating USA and Canada,
and in this sense is keen to encourage dialogues and
debates which transcend the boundaries of customary
theoretical approaches to the culture, history, and
politics of the North American continent.

Hello all,

We've extended the deadline for submission to Monday March 13th, 2006. In
particular, we're hoping to add more general or comparative papers on
archival studies, modernists, and Modernism to compliment author-specific
presentations.

Decisions will be made on a rolling basis until the deadline, so early
submissions are welcome. Updates on the conference hotel, registration, and
speakers will continue to appear on the website.
