Journal of Transnational American Studies--Special Forums

full name / name of organization: 
Journal of Transnational American Studies--Special Forums

The Journal of Transnational American Studies (JTAS) invites proposals for Special Forums in upcoming issues. Each Special Forum will be a cluster of articles that speaks to a critical issue in transnational American Studies; we are particularly interested in innovative scholarship that is presented by coalitions of scholars from around the globe and which interrogates the geographical, topical, and ideological parameters of American Studies.

The Editorial Board will consider Special Forum proposals on a rolling basis. Proposals should be submitted in a Word document to Yanoula Athanassakis, the Associate Managing Editor for Special Forums, at:

Each proposal should include:
(1) a cover note that briefly explains the significance of the special focus and introduces the prospective guest editors and
(2) a draft of the call for papers for the Special Forum (250-word limit).

If the Special Forum proposal is accepted, the forum's guest editors will send out the CFP, field all submission queries and follow JTAS' procedures for a peer review process.
