Call for Papers
American Periodicals, Special Issue

In 2009 American Periodicals will be publishing a special issue on "Immigrant Periodicals." We are calling for essays addressing any area of the broad and relatively understudied field of periodical publications for and by immigrant communities to the United States, focusing on the period between 1740-1920. We are especially interested in research addressing non-English periodicals. For consideration for the Special Issue on Immigrant Periodicals, please submit your essay by January 31, 2008.

Manuscripts should conform to the 15th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style, double- spaced (including quotations and notes), and be roughly limited to 7,000 words. Submissions are accepted electronically as email attachments at . If hard copy submission is preferred, please send two hard copies of the manuscript, along with a self- addressed return envelope. Electronic submissions will receive electronic reports.

Please direct all contributions and inquiries to:
