Call for articles from emerging history professionals



AASLH History News Magazine
Deadline: 8/15/2017

Emerging History Professionals are taking over the Winter 2018 issue of the American Association for State and Local History’s History News magazine! The issue will be guest co-edited by emerging history professionals Hope Shannon and Hannah Hethmon. Features and articles will all focus on Emerging History Professionals and reflect their insights and opinions about the field.
Anyone in the early stages of a public history career, broadly defined, is an Emerging History Professional. This includes graduate and undergraduate students, hobbyists, early-career professionals, and any other AASLH members who identify as belonging to this community.

History News exists to foster publication, scholarly research, and an open forum for discussion of best practices, applicable theories, and professional experiences pertinent to the field of state and local history. History News is a quarterly membership publication of the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH), a nonprofit educational membership organization providing leadership, service, and support for its members who preserve and interpret state and local history in order to make the past more meaningful in American society.

The editors are seeking submission of article abstracts. Proposed articles must:

• Be relevant to the theme of Emerging History Professionals.
• Articles by emerging professionals will be given priority over those with more time in the field.
• Not have previously been published elsewhere.
• Be 2,500-3,000 words in length and properly footnoted and cited in Chicago/Turabian style.

Instructions and Deadlines:
• The deadline for submitting abstracts is August 15, 2017.
• Authors of accepted articles will be notified by the first week of September 2017. • They will then have until November 1 to submit a final edited and reviewed version of their article. At that time, the article must be fit for print.

Along with the abstract (500 words max), submission must include:
• A brief paragraph explaining how the article is relevant to the early history career/emerging history professional issues and AASLH’s mission (200 words max)
• A brief biographical statement (100 words max)

Read the full submission instructions and submit your abstract. Questions about topics and submission guidelines should be directed to Hope Shannon and Hannah Hethmon.
