Dear H-AmIndian Subscribers, 

We are writing to invite essay submissions to our innovative digital anthology, Cultural Encounters of the Civil War Era, which focuses on how diverse U.S.-Americans engaged with other groups in the era of the U.S. Civil War (ca. 1830 - ca. 1890). The war, and the series of conflicts associated with it, overlapped and at points became entangled with pivotal developments across North America. From the Medicine Line to Native Americans serving in the Civil War to the borderlands between Mexico and the United States, North America offered varied landscapes of interaction. So too did issues of indigenous rights and agency come to bear on interactions further afield, including in Latin America, the island worlds of the Pacific Ocean, and Australia and New Zealand. We are seeking essay contributions to the volume that are based on original primary source research, foreground a specific encounter, and examine and contextualize the encounter from multiple angles. As the full CfP explains, we are publishing the essays online on a rolling basis through an innovative peer review process, with support from H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online. The volume will be published on an open access model, enhancing its impact in research and teaching. For initial discussions or questions, feel welcome to contact the editors at Full contact information and other details are available in the CfP.
