Dear Friends & Colleagues,
As the new book review editor for Journal of the American Studies Association of Texas (JASAT), I would like to invite any interested scholar to write a review for our upcoming issue. Attached is a list of books to consider from different publishing houses. If you have a particular book in mind, I am willing to consider any book that explores a topic dealing with American history, literature, journalism, or culture. The reviews need to be roughly 350 words long.
The current list of books covers a variety of topics—pop culture, literature, film, history, philosophy, politics, journalism, pedagogy, composition, and cultural issues—and hopefully covers a topic you are currently researching or might have an interest in studying. Please feel free to share this list with your colleagues and graduate students as well. As many of you know, book reviews are a great way for graduate students to get their first publication.
Here is a link to our book review guidelines: http://asatexas.org/bkreview.html. Basic membership in ASAT is required to write a review ($25 per year). The deadline for committing to a review is Feb. 22. We will need completed drafts by April 1.
If you would like to complete a review this year, please email your top three picks to firstname.lastname@example.org.
