Call for Papers—Joint Issue with Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography

Special Issue: Teaching Pennsylvania History (Fall 2014)

The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography and Pennsylvania History are planning a joint publication, scheduled for 2014, on teaching Pennsylvania History. We invite teachers who have a special interest in a topic, such as women’s history, African American history, political bosses, religious sects, a particular event (Coal Strike of 1902/3, Centennial Exhibition of 1876), etc., to prepare an article that describes their method, perhaps with illustrations, documents, and connection to Web sites, that would help others teach that subject in the context of Pennsylvania and US history at the college level (though articles that suggest how to adapt the presented materials for high school [End Page 97] use are welcome). Articles should be about 15–20 pages and double-spaced. Please indicate any documents or other resources you would like to include, either in print or online.

Submission details: Please send inquiries to either Tamara Gaskell ( or Bill Pencak (

Deadline for submissions: January 1, 2013. [End Page 98]
