The Association of Historians of American Art is pleased to invite submissions for feature-length articles to appear in the organization’s new peer-reviewed electronic journal of American art, entitled Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art. The biannual journal, which will debut in fall 2014, will be the first peer-reviewed electronic publication dedicated to American art and visual culture (broadly defined) from the colonial period to the present day. Panorama is intended to provide a high-caliber international forum for disseminating original research and scholarship and for sustaining a lively engagement with the intellectual developments and methodological debates on current practices in art history, visual and material cultural studies, and curatorial work. It encourages a broad range of perspectives and approaches within an interdisciplinary framework encompassing both local and global contexts. Panorama welcomes submissions that utilize the insights of both traditional and new historical and interpretive approaches to American art.
The e-journal will be accessible and free to all. Panorama will be published twice a year, in the spring and the fall. It will have its own web address, and also will be accessible via a link from the AHAA website ( http://www.ahaaonline.org). Back issues will be archived on the journal website. The editors are committed to preserving access to past issues in a variety of electronic venues, including scholarly indices and research databases.
In addition to peer-reviewed scholarly articles, Panorama will include several other regular features. Taking advantage of the speed of online delivery, timely Book Reviews and Exhibition Reviews will offer critical and historiographic perspectives on recent publications and exhibitions. Discoveries/Research Notes will bring the nascent stages of scholarly inquiry (both academic and curatorial) to the attention of readers in short form.
At this time, we seek manuscripts of 7,000–10,000 words (excluding captions and footnotes) to appear in the Fall 2014 number and future issues. Authors should submit their manuscripts electronically to:
Ross Barrett, Executive Editor
Manuscripts submitted before December 2013 will be considered for inclusion in the inaugural issue of Panorama. Submissions for future issues will thereafter be accepted throughout the year.
