  • Call for Papers – A Nation Divided: Conflict in US History and Politics

    2019-04-09

    The third issue of USAbroad seeks to reflect on the complex and multifaceted notion of conflict and its role in promoting political, economic, social and cultural change. The goal is to understand how conflict has manifested itself and shaped American society, economy, and politics over time, but also how it has influenced relations between the United States and the rest of the world. USAbroad invites submissions discussing any periods of U.S. history that address the theme of “conflict” in its broader meaning, from political, to social, cultural, racial, and institutional. Understanding conflict as a crucial catalyst of change, we are interested in problems of historical causation, action and reaction, crisis, progress and advancement.

    Deadlines:

    • Submission of abstract: May 19, 2019
    • Outcome notified: May 31, 2019
    • Submission of full articles: September 20, 2019
