CfP – The Legacy of Jane Addams

Call for Articles—Special Issue of Peace & Change: A Journal of Peace Research—Topic: The Legacy of Jane Addams

Peace & Change, the journal of the Peace History Society (PHS) and the Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA) is planning a special issue in early 2011 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Jane Addams’s birth and the 10th anniversary of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, gender equality, and peace. We are interested in publishing pieces pertinent to Addams’s legacy of women’s rights, nonviolence, citizenship responsibility, human rights, and activism against the use of violence against women in militarized societies or during war. Articles which address the work of women’s organizations, human rights efforts, and individual people’s work on behalf of women are welcome. Also of interest are first-hand accounts from activists currently working on these issues. Acceptance for publication will be based on originality, scholarship, and attention to women’s issues. We particularly welcome materials addressing regional or global perspectives through a historical lens.

Deadline for submission: January 15, 2010. Contributors will be notified by late February of acceptance of papers. All revisons will be due back to the editors by June 15, 2010.

Guidelines for submission: All submissions should be sent as Microsoft Word documents, use Times New Roman, and be double-spaced throughout, including the abstract, block quotes, and notes. Articles should not exceed 25 pages, excluding endnotes. Shorter pieces and very short anecdotes are welcome. All notes should be placed at the end of the manuscript and conform to the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. A 50-word biographical statement and an abstract of 100-150 words must accompany the manuscript. The editors are the final arbiters of length, grammar, and usage. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to use copyrighted material. Please note that Word 2007 is not yet compatible with journal and production systems. Unfortunately, the journal cannot accept Microsoft Word 2007 documents. Refer to for more information on this matter and for the submission of artwork, photographs, etc.
