The Editors of the Journal of Transnational American Studies, a peer-reviewed online, open-access journal published by the American Cultures and Global Contexts Center at the University of California-Santa Barbara and the Program in American Studies at Stanford University, are pleased to announce the publication of the journal's latest issue as we move to a biannual publication schedule.

JTAS 3.2 may be accessed without charge at http://escholarship.org/uc/acgcc_jtas.

This issue features our first Special Forum entitled "Circa 1898: Overseas Empire and Transnational American Studies," guest-edited by Hsuan L. Hsu (University of California, Davis, USA).  As the newest section of the journal, Special Forums are collections of critical responses to US transnational subjects, guest-edited by American Studies scholars and vetted by the editorial board.

JTAS 3.2 contains contributions from scholars based all around the globe with article topics as varied as Cecil B. DeMille’s film The Cheat and Eastern European adoption.  Other topics range from an examination of Hannah Arendt's transnationality to an ambitious call for "Deep Maps" in American Studies, from an analysis of the turn-of-the-century publication Colored American Magazine to a transnational reading of John Updike’s 2006 novel Terrorist.


JTAS welcomes submissions of articles and proposals for special forums.  http://escholarship.org/uc/search?entity=acgcc_jtas;view=call#generalcall 

General Call for Papers

The Journal of Transnational American Studies (JTAS) is a peer-reviewed online journal that seeks to broaden the interdisciplinary study of American cultures in transnational contexts. JTAS functions as an open-access forum for Americanists in the global academic community, where scholars are increasingly interrogating borders both within and outside the nation and focusing on the multiple intersections and exchanges that flow across those borders. JTAS is a new critical conduit that seeks to bring together innovative transnational work from diverse but often disconnected sites in the U.S. and abroad. In order to facilitate the broadest possible cultural conversation about transnational American Studies, the journal will be available without cost to anyone with access to the Internet. Sponsored by UC Santa Barbara's American Cultures and Global Contexts Center and Stanford University's Program in American Studies , JTAS is hosted on the eScholarship Repository, which is part of the eScholarship initiative of the California Digital Library .

In her 2004 presidential address to the American Studies Association, Shelley Fisher Fishkin noted the growing recognition that understanding the United States requires looking beyond and across national borders. This "transnational turn" has emphasized the multidirectional flows of peoples, ideas, and goods, and in the process has thrown into question the "naturalness" of political, geographical, and epistemological boundaries. The Journal of Transnational American Studies seeks new and innovative scholarship that mines and pushes the plural and global possibilities of American Studies. We encourage contributions from a variety of fields and disciplines, including cultural studies, media studies and new media, literature, visual arts, performance studies, music, religion, history, politics, and law.

We particularly welcome scholarship—both from within and beyond the U.S.—that engages in American Studies in a critical and self- reflective manner. For instance, how does one distinguish transnationalism from past and present discourses of internationalism, cosmopolitanism, and globalization? Has American Studies always been transnational, or has this "turn" come about through the pressures of global capitalism? What are the implications of the transnational turn for theorizing ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, and class? Can one speak of a set of reading practices and of concepts that compose a research methodology for transnational American Studies? 

The Journal of Transnational American Studies (JTAS) invites proposals for Special Forums in upcoming issues. Each Special Forum will be a cluster of articles that speaks to a critical issue in transnational American Studies; we are particularly interested in innovative scholarship that is presented by coalitions of scholars from around the globe and which interrogates the geographical, topical, and ideological parameters of American Studies.

The Editorial Board will consider Special Forum proposals on a rolling basis. Proposals should be submitted in a Word document to Yanoula Athanassakis, the Associate Managing Editor for Special Forums, at:[log in to unmask]

Each Special Forum proposal should include:

(1) a cover note that briefly explains the significance of the special focus and introduces the prospective guest editors

(2) a draft of the call for papers for the Special Forum (300-word limit).

If the Special Forum proposal is accepted, the forum's guest editors will send out the CFP, field all submission queries and follow JTAS'procedures for a peer review process (please review our " Submissions guidelines "). Special Forums are housed within issues of JTAS, and guest editors are responsible only for the content of their forums. 

Please submit manuscripts electronically through this website. Submissions are accepted year-round on a rolling basis; to guarantee full consideration for Fall issues, submissions should be received by June 15th and for Winter/Spring issues by November 1st:

Manuscripts should range between 6,000-8,000 words, including notes and works cited, must follow the Chicago Manual of Style, and include an abstract (not to exceed 250 words). Submission guidelines and the style guide for JTAS can be found by following the links in the navigation bar to the left.

To submit an article for consideration in a Special Forum, please follow the same procedure and indicate "Special Forum" when prompted for "Type of Submission."
