CFP: 'Canada's "special relationships", London Journal of Canadian Studies

Call for papers on 'Canada's "special relationships", deadline July 2012

Volume 27 (October 2012) of the London Journal of Canadian Studies, the on-line journal of the London Canadian Studies Association (LoCSA), will be a themed issue on 'Canada's "special relationships"' based largely on papers given at the BACS History and Politics Group annual conference in July 2011. Articles submitted so far, or in the pipeline, include Canada's relations with Britain, the USA, France, NATO and the EU. There is still room for one or two more articles on any of the above or on Canada's other "special relationships" such as the Arctic, Mexico, the Netherlands, Afghanistan, etc. The journal is multidisciplinary so articles are welcome from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective including history, politics, international relations, literature, film and art.

The deadline for submission of articles is 13 July 2012. All articles will be sent to two anonymous reviewers in July 2012 and successful ones will be published, subject to amendments, in October 2012. Articles should be 5,000-10,000 words in length and include endnotes and a bibliography. The house style can be seen by accessing the journal via the LoCSA website.

The current volume of the London Journal (Volume 26, published October 2011, guest editor: Tracie Scott) is entitled 'Indigenous Peoples: Historical Understanding, Contemporary Challenges and Canadian Approaches' and resulted from a conference organised by the Aboriginal Studies Circle in London in October 2009.

Articles are welcome from established academics, early careerists and doctoral students. The journal is now in its 27th year and its articles have frequently been submitted to the RAE. Submissions should be made in the form of a Word document to the editor, Dr Tony McCulloch by 13 July 2012.
