The American Review of Canadian Studies invites submissions for the journal’s biennial Thomas O. Enders Special Issue on Canada-U.S. Relations. Submissions from all disciplines and from interdisciplinary perspectives are welcome – including environmental history, energy history, environmental humanities, geography, environmental policy, diplomacy and international relations, etc. – but should, in some way, focus on this year’s theme: the role of environmental, energy, and/or natural resource issues in the bilateral relationship. Accepted articles will receive a $500 stipend following successful peer-review and publication.

The Enders Special Issue is named in honor of the former United States Ambassador to Canada (1976-81). Among the many interests Thomas Enders pursued during his distinguished career in foreign service was the promotion of Canadian Studies in his own country. The Enders Foundation, which he established, provides funding for the publication of this biennial special issue.

The American Review of Canadian Studies is the quarterly peer-reviewed scholarly journal for the Association for Canadian Studies in the United States and is published by Taylor and Francis.  Although based in the United States, we welcome authors from the U.S., Canada, and around the world and publish in either French or English.
