Island Textiles and Clothing:
A thematic section of Island Studies Journal, 13(2), November 2018
Island Studies Journal invites paper submissions on the theme of ‘Island Textiles and Clothing’. Selected peer-reviewed papers will be published as a special section in Island Studies Journal in November 2018. Island Studies Journal is a web-based, freely downloadable, open access, peer reviewed, electronic journal that publishes papers advancing and critiquing the study of issues affecting or involving islands.
Papers may present case studies, undertake wider comparisons, or take a theoretical approach. While papers may concern any small island, or group of islands, it is important that papers not only discuss traditions on one or more particular islands but also engage with how island geography, culture, location, conditions, and/or status are important to the processes under discussion and engage with the existing islands studies literature. In other words, the island factor must be brought to the forefront of the papers.
For further information, or if you are interested in submitting a paper, please contact thematic section editor Siún Carden (University of the Highlands and Islands, Siun.Carden@uhi.ac.uk). To learn more about Island Studies Journal, contact the journal’s incoming Executive Editor, Adam Grydehoj (University of Prince Edward Island, firstname.lastname@example.org). Manuscripts should preferably be of around 5,000 to 8,000 words (prepared in the APA style, 6th edition, which is the ISJ house style: http://islandstudies.ca/guidelines_instructions.html).). They should reach editors not later than 30 November 2017 to be considered for the Island Studies Journal special section. Individual papers may be published on the website ‘ahead of press’ following peer review. Please contact editors with information about your proposed paper before you begin writing it.
