CALL FOR PAPERS IJMES Special Issue: World War I in the Middle East and North Africa Guest editor Mustafa Aksakal with IJMES editors Beth Baron and Sara Pursley While World War I is generally understood as a watershed in the history of the Middle East and North Africa, the war as experienced by MENA societies remains underexplored. The war took the lives of at least five million people, mostly civilians, across the region, and it is clear that the mayhem and suffering it unleashed changed the area profoundly. As the one-hundredth anniversary of the war approaches, an in-depth look at the material and environmental devastation it caused and at civilian life during the war years is warranted. For this special issue, the International Journal of Middle East Studies (IJMES) invites manuscript submissions that employ new scholarly approaches to examine the social, political, military, environmental, economic, literary, or cultural histories of World War I. Submissions may focus on any element of this great transformation, including but not limited to civilian life during wartime, the battle experience of the common soldier, military and economic planning, effects on gender and family life, the role of technology, artistic and cultural expressions, public health and disease, famine, population transfer and ethnic violence, relief workers and civilian organizations, long-term socioeconomic and demographic impacts, and ways in which the war has been remembered and commemorated. The deadline for submissions is 8 April 2013. Authors should follow the regular guidelines for submitting an article manuscript to IJMES, which are detailed here: http://web.gc.cuny.edu/ijmes/pages/submissions.html. All articles in special issues must be accepted individually through the standard IJMES peer review process. Any accepted article that was submitted before 8 April and that fits the above description may be considered for publication in the special issue.
