CFP: Edges of the Great Salt Lake

The winter 2019 issue of Utah Historical Quarterly will focus on a special theme: the edges of the Great Salt Lake, where the water meets the land. We welcome short or long research articles, biographies, primary documents, photographic essays, and archaeological field notes and case studies related to that dynamic border. We are especially interested in wetlands, waterfowl hunting, bird refuges, boats, and development along the lake's edges. We also welcome essays that examine the lake in a larger environmental and cultural context.
