Call for Papers: "The Civil Rights Movement and Historical Memory"
We invite submissions of articles for an anthology on historical memory
and the civil rights movement to be published by the University of
Georgia Press. In the past twenty years, the civil rights movement of
the 1950s and 1960s has assumed a central place in American historical
memory. This collection of essays will explore the many ways in which
the civil rights movement has been constructed and disseminated in
American historical memory, and what the significance of particular
memories of the movement are for contemporary politics and culture. We
seek manuscripts on all aspects of the memory of the movement.
Potential topics include: films, music, civil rights monuments and
museums, the invocation of the movement in political debates, and the
creation and use of civil rights "icons." Essays should be no more than
25 manuscript pages and should be written for a general audience.
Send completed manuscripts to both editors by March 1, 2003:
Department of History,
Middletown, CT 06459,
The John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International
2204 Erwin Rd.,
PO Box 90402,
Durham, NC 27708.
