The Centre for American Studies is delighted to be supporting and housing a new student-run on-line journal in American Studies.
Neoamericanist, affiliated with and funded by the Centre for American Studies at the University of Western Ontario, is an exclusively Undergraduate and Graduate, peer-reviewed and blinded journal. Our goal as editors is to push the boundaries of scholarship and theory by blurring the lines of academic disciplines and popular culture through a top quality journal available to students and future professional scholars who aspire to publish and contribute to the intellectual community. We therefore invite students of history, theory and criticism, philosophy, political studies, economics, sociology, geography, first nations studies, anthropology, women's/gender studies, architecture and design, film studies, and others, to submit works pertaining to the study of America. To submit or for more information, contact the journal editors at:
