Special Feature Section: “American Studies in the Archive”

The New Americanist seeks articles for its fourth issue’s special feature section “American Studies in the Archive.” Articles whose framework largely depends on archival materials, or which theorize the role of the archive – either historically or in current practice – will be considered. Special consideration will be given to articles which take race, transnational, LGBTQ, or disability studies approaches.

Send a 250-word abstract and a brief biography with institutional affiliation to newamericanistjournal@gmail.com by 19 July 2019. Completed articles 6000-8000 words in length based on accepted abstracts will be due by 18 October 2019.


The New Americanist is always seeking articles on any topic which fits our editorial statement. You are welcome to submit a proposal at any time for consideration.


The New Americanist comes out twice yearly in association with the American Studies Center, University of Warsaw. Please submit previously unpublished work only. All submissions will be subject to a double-blind peer review.


The New Americanist is always seeking book reviews and commentary. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing.
