CFP: The Great Migration and Smaller Midwestern Cities

The critical importance of the Great Migration to Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, and Milwaukee has been well-documented. Less understood has been the history and impact of the Great Migration in smaller midwestern urban spaces (such as Peoria, Saginaw, Council Bluffs, and Sioux Falls, etc.) in the century between the Civil War and the modern Civil Rights Movement (approx. 1860-1970). The Middle West Review, in recognition of the centennial of the Great Migration era, welcomes proposals outlining potential articles on this lesser-known migration for publication in a special issue of the journal. Proposals should be two paragraphs, include a CV, and be sent to by December 15, 2019.
