CFP: Multi-Ethnic History of 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.

Re: Boy (and Girl) Scouts of America

To augment this, you might explore the history of the Baden-Powell Service Association (BPSA), which has always been coed and inclusive since its founding in 2006 in the US. Currently the organization is wrestling with how to maintain its stance as "traditional" scouting based on Baden-Powell's original writings while also maintaining its mission to be coed at all levels, since of course B-P focused his efforts on boys, as well as taking to task the issues of cultural appropriation in the "Indian lore" etc.
