Appel à communication : Disasters in French history

Call for Papers
Disaster in French History

The editors of _French Historical Studies_ seek articles for a special issue on the theme of disaster in French history.  As an interdisciplinary field, disaster studies has sought to understand the political, economic, cultural, and environmental consequences of disasters, both natural and human-made, on societies.  The experience of disasters in France has had a profound impact on the history of its people in both the metropole and colonies.

We invite articles on the theme of disaster broadly understood including, but not limited to, the following themes:

  o environmental degradation
  o urban decay or destruction
  o natural catastrophe (e.g., flood, heat wave, famine)
  o infrastructure failure (e.g. building or mine collapse)
  o events interpreted or experienced as disasters (e.g., acts of war, police actions, economic or financial crisis)

Queries regarding submission and all other matters regarding this special issue should be addressed to the guest editors Elinor Accampo (accampo@college.usc.edu) and Jeffrey H. Jackson (jacksonj@rhodes.edu).  Articles may be either in English or in French but must conform to _French Historical Studies_ style (see http://fhs.umn.edu/ for details) and must be accompanied by 150 word abstracts in both languages.  Papers should be between 8,000 and 10,000 words (up to but not longer than 14,000 words including notes).  For the inclusion of illustrations written permission must be obtained from the relevant persons or institutions for print and on‒line publication.

Manuscripts can be sent by post or electronically to the managing assistant of the journal, Richard Parks, _French Historical Studies_, Department of History, University of Minnesota-twin cities, 1110 Heller Hall, 271 19th Avenue South Minneapolis, MN 55455. E-mail:  (frhistst@umn.edu<mailto:frhistst@umn.edu>).  We encourage, but do not require, electronic submission of manuscripts.  Manuscripts submitted electronically should be sent in MS Word or Rich Text Format (RTF).

The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2011.
