American Art, the peer-reviewed journal co-published by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the University of Chicago Press, seeks papers that answer the question, “What is the place of design in American art history?” In an effort to explore this topic, the journal plans to publish several short, scholarly essays that demonstrate how the history of design can contribute to art history. Our conception of design encompasses objects, places, environments, experiences, systems, and sites shaped by culture. While we are open to a range of historic periods, there is a particular editorial interest in material from the nineteenth century and earlier. Leggi tutto “01/11/2019 – CFP: Design Intervention”
This 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), the universal genius, the twofold engineer of defense walls against the enemy as much as swing-bridges for overtaking them; of impenetrable dams for stopping natural waterways as much as artificial water-channels for the penetration of commerce and the mixing of peoples and cultures; of barricades for puzzling the enemy on the ground as much as flying machines and futuristic prototypes of inspection drones, anticipating our transcontinental connections.
The USAbroad Editorial Committee is pleased to announce that our call for submissions of articles is now open.
USAbroad is the first Italian academic journal published annually by an editorial board of early-career scholars and entirely dedicated to the study of U.S. history and politics. The journal sets out to offer the occasion to international postgraduates and early career scholars to publish innovative and ground-breaking academic research.
We invite articles, written in English, that investigate any aspects of U.S. history and politics: social, economic and intellectual developments, relations of gender, race and class, foreign policy, international relations, history of policies and institutions. The journal pays specific attention to recent historiographical trends, in particular global, transatlantic and Atlantic history, and to multidisciplinary approaches which successfully intermingle history with social and political sciences.
Please visit our website to submit your article. You will need to register as an Author and follow our five step procedure. Please make sure you follow the Author guidelines and read our Editorial Policies. Once submitted, your article will undergo a double-blind peer review process with external reviewers. If accepted, you article will be included in the second issue of the journal. The issue will be split into two parts, the first originating from a Call for Papers circulated early in 2018 and dedicated to nationalism in the United States (you can access the CFP here), the second with no overarching theme. You have time until April 2019 to submit your article, and we ensure that — if accepted — the article will be out before the end of October 2019.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Editorial Committee (at firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.

The Sound of Silence in American Literature, Culture and Politics
The thematic focus of the XXXI Annual Polish Association for American Studies conference falls on cadences of speech and silence in American literature, culture and politics. In its original signification captured by the 1964 Simon and Garfunkel song, “the sound of silence” stands not only for thwarted communication, inability of people to communicate, the dissonance between speech and silence, but also alternative, non-verbal means of communication, hinting at a whole myriad of possibilities that the original curse of silence does not immediately suggest.
