CFP: Traversea – New Online Journal in Transatlantic History

Call for Papers: Traversea (Online Journal)

The Editors of Traversea; Arlington, Texas

Deadline: 05/01/2011

We invite students to submit manuscripts for the first edition of our new
online journal Traversea.

Traversea is an online journal 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.
Transatlantic history is inherently interdisciplinary, transnational, and
comparative in approach and moves beyond the boundaries imposed by the
concept of the nation state.

The editors invite submissions that are historical, geographical,
anthropological, literary, sociological, and cartographic in nature.
Traversea is operated by doctoral students as a joint project between the
Transatlantic History Student Organization and the doctoral program in
transatlantic history at the University of Texas at Arlington.

The editors prefer to work with manuscripts no longer than 10,000 words,
including tables, charts, footnotes and all bibliographical information. The
editors accept submissions written in English, French, Spanish, German, and
Portuguese, but all authors must submit an abstract in English approximately
100 words in length. Submissions should be written in Times New Roman 12
points and include citations in Chicago or MLA format. The inclusion of
images is encouraged, but all authors are responsible for obtaining
permission to publish the image and paying the required fees.

All articles and abstracts can be sent via email and must be in PDF format.
Please include your contact information, including your e-mail address in
all correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2011. The publication of the first
issue is planned for Fall 2011.
