CFP: Journal of American Ethnic History special issue on immigration and migration to U.S. South

The Journal of American Ethnic History seeks proposals for a special issue on immigration in the U.S. South. 

 

Since the late 1980s and early 1990s, the U.S. South has hosted some of the fastest growing Latina/o and Asian immigrant communities. While these large populations have drawn the attention of sociologists, anthropologists, and popular audiences, less attention has been given to the longer and interconnected histories of immigration to the region.
