New Errands: The Undergraduate Journal of American Studies

Announcement and Call for Papers

Managing Editor: Timothy D. Smith

Guest Editor: Jacque Day Pallone

Supervising Faculty Editor: Dr. Jeffrey Tolbert

The Eastern American Studies Association and the American Studies Program at Penn State Harrisburg are pleased to announce the seventh year of publication for New Errands (ISSN: 2375-6748), an online journal of exemplary American Studies work by undergraduate students.

Seeking to develop the next generation of Americanists, New Errands’ mission is both to provide a venue for the publication of important original scholarship by emerging young scholars and to provide a teaching resource for instructors of American Studies looking for exemplary work to use in the classroom.

To support this mission, New Errands is published in a free and open-access format on the internet. To view or download our previous issues, go to: http://journals.psu.edu/ne.

Ideally, New Errands is published semi-annually, after the end of each academic semester. The goal of this timetable is to collect and publish essays produced during the previous term, so that they can be made available as quickly as possible for use in the following term. Due to disruptions caused by the pandemic, we are working to get back on schedule with the Fall 2020 issue. Articles accepted for spring 2020 will be included in the Fall 2020 issue.

Fall 2020 Call for Submissions:

Now in its seventh year of publication, the editors are seeking to expand the journal’s mission by calling for submissions nationally, as well as from our regional EASA partner institutions. We encourage both self-submission by undergraduate students and nominated submissions by instructional faculty. Submissions must have an Americanist focus, but the editors encourage submissions from a variety of disciplinary methods. Essays should be between 1500 and 12000 words in length, excluding notes and bibliography. Any visual images should be included at the end of the manuscript with tags put in the text to indicate the intended placement of each image. Manuscripts should conform to the Chicago style and citation guidelines, 17th edition. Submissions can be emailed as a Word document to [email protected] by November, 20.

Best wishes for a prose-filled semester!

2021-22 Anschutz Distinguished Fellowship

The Program in American Studies at Princeton University, founded in 1943, sponsors teaching, research, and public discussion about the history, literature, art, and culture of the United States, in ways that transcend the traditional disciplines.

The Anschutz Distinguished Fellowship, created through an endowment by the Anschutz family, will be awarded in the academic year 2021-22 to a distinguished writer, critic, journalist, musician, artist, or other contributor to the arts, letters, public service, or commerce. The fellowship holder need not be an academic scholar. However, the selection committee will place great weight on indicia of the candidate’s teaching ability as well as the rigor, innovation, and interdisciplinary emphasis of the proposed seminar course.

The appointment period will be for one semester only: Fall 2021 or Spring 2022. Appointees “in residence” will reside in Princeton or the local vicinity, and demonstrate to the program’s satisfaction the ability to be on campus on a daily basis and on short notice in order to fulfill responsibilities. “Commuting” appointees will live within daily commuting distance of Princeton’s campus and will not be expected to be on campus on a daily basis. Both types of appointees will be expected to perform the following, core duties:

The Anschutz Distinguished Fellow will teach one interdisciplinary undergraduate seminar course for the American studies program during this one-semester appointment. The seminar will be composed of not more than 15 students, and will meet for three hours weekly over the 12-week teaching semester. In addition to teaching and holding weekly office hours to meet with enrolled students, the fellow will be expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the American studies program, including participation in a wide range of events and activities on campus (such as participating in the American Studies Workshop). The fellow will also deliver at least one public lecture to the University. The fellow will enjoy full access to Firestone Library, a computer-equipped campus office during the appointment period, and access to various University facilities.

A fellow who must relocate to Princeton or the local vicinity will receive a salary of $90,000, plus benefits eligibility. A fellow who commutes to campus will receive a salary of $60,000, plus benefits eligibility.

To apply, please visit https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/17121, and submit the following materials by no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on December 1, 2020: A cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a preliminary syllabus, and a short statement describing your proposed seminar and public lecture. A short list of finalists will be asked to submit further materials later. For additional information, please see our website, https://ams.princeton.edu, or call (609) 258-6771.
