CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A SPECIAL ISSUE OF FRENCH HISTORICAL STUDIES ON COLONIALISM AND THE WRITING OF FRENCH HISTORY

The editors of French Historical Studies seek contributions for a special issue of the journal to focus on the history of French colonialism and the writing of that history. France's colonial past has recently begun to attract much more attention from French historians. Yet the earlier marginal status of French colonial history, combined with the convention of training scholars in only one national history, has obscured the contours of this emerging field. What is colonial history in the French context? Was activity in the colonies critical to developments (political, cultural and other) in France? If so, how can colonialism be reintegrated into the history of the metropole without disenfranchising those formerly colonized? Or is all colonial history necessarily transnational history, which French historians must now learn to write? Finally, how can
postcolonial, literary and gender theories be used most effectively by historians interested in French colonialism?

Submissions dealing with any aspect of colonialism are welcome, as are all disciplinary and theoretical perspectives that are compatible with the journal's historical orientation. We are interested especially in articles that examine a particular facet of French colonialism but also reflect upon the author's approach to the topic. Although we expect most of the published contributions to be based on primary source materials, we also welcome theoretical, methodological and historiographical articles on the relationship between the national and the colonial, and/or the "old" colonial history and the "new."

Authors should indicate in a cover letter that they intend the article for the special issue on colonialism; the journal's standard review policy will apply. Manuscripts should be submitted by March 1, 2002 to the editors, Ted W. Margadant and Jo Burr Margadant, at the Department of History, University of California at Davis, Davis, CA 95616.

Questions about the suitability of particular contributions may be addressed to the guest editors of the special issue, professors Alice Conklin, in the department of history at the University of Rochester
(ackn@mail.rochester.edu) and Julia Clancy-Smith, in the department of history at the University of Arizona (juliac@u.arizona.edu).
