New England and the Great War    

The New England Quarterly is entertaining submissions for a special issue commemorating New England's participation in the Great War. Successful submissions will be consistent with The Quarterly's traditional editorial policy of reflecting all aspects of the history of New England's life and letters as they reflect an organic part of the United States and the world.  The editors are especially interested in topics that address hitherto unrepresented groups, deepen our understanding of connections of the regional, national, and global consequences of the Great War, and that stimulate new fields of inquiry.

Submissions should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed.

Essays submitted for the commemorative issue cannot be considered after 1 January 2017.

Please submit electronic copies in Word and pdf to; an additional hard copy should be submitted to
