WWI Special Interest
Monographs for our World War I Centenary Series. This peer reviewed series will commemorate America’s involvement in the Great War.
This series is open to all aspects of American involvement but will especially highlight Georgia’s participation. We also especially encourage proposed monographs linking local and regional to national and international engagement and that address such questions as “What effect did local engagement have on national or international engagement,” and “How did international engagement activities affect local or regional engagement activities?”
Other topics of interest include:
- Weapons and Technology
- Battles with American participants
- Specific Individuals (i.e., Alvin York or F. Scott Fitzgerald)
- The conjunction of Military Studies and Cultural Studies (i.e., military strength/colonialism)
- Security issues related to the environment, health, and trade, including but not limited to biochemical, medical, military, etc.
- Activities in countries gaining closer attention regarding WWI involvement (i.e., Poland, Hungary, Russia, Japan, China, etc.)
Where to send your proposals/queries:
All proposals and queries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that while we accept simultaneous submissions, we do ask that if your proposal/manuscript is accepted by another publisher, that you inform us as soon as possible so we can pull it from our queue. Thank you for your consideration!
Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, it currently takes us about six to eight weeks to review a submission. Submissions are reviewed in the order they are received. We will respond to your submission in writing after it has been reviewed.
