Dear colleagues and friends,

the deadline of the fourth call for proposals of USAbroad – Journal of American History and Politics has been extended until May 25. The call is available at the following address:

For the year 2020, USAbroad invites potential contributors—from Italy, Europe, and around the world—to submit proposals that reflect on how gender interacted and still interacts with political discourse and practice at large. This means exploring not only how gender has influenced political participation and mobilization but also how gender issues have shaped – and have been shaped by – the society that underpins common political norms and institutions. The stated goal is to investigate the complex and multi-faceted link between gender and empowerment in American history and politics.

Applicants are asked to submit an abstract of approximately 500 words, along with a résumé including their main publications, by May 25. Please send your proposal by email to: By June 15, applicants will be notified about the status of the submission. Please note that a final version of the accepted essay will have to be submitted by October 4.
