Call for Papers

Disasters, Pandemics and Crises in Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador Studies is interested in producing a thematic issue on the causes/effects of, and responses to disasters or anthropogenic crises in this province. Such events can be geologic, pathogenic, economic, societal, political, cultural, ecological or climatic in nature, and have occurred, are occurring or may unfold in the future. Drawing on recent works in the field of critical disaster studies, we ask contributors to consider the durational nature of disasters and their lasting ‘echoes’ or impacts. Critical readings of disaster-related fiction/nonfiction pertaining to the province are likewise welcome.
This is an open call to all scholars of Newfoundland and Labrador studies to contribute to the thematic issue “Disasters, Pandemics and Crises in Newfoundland and Labrador: Past, Present and Future.” 
Expressions of interest must be emailed to the NLS editor ( no later than March 15th 2022. Papers are due by August 2022 and will undergo a double-blind peer review process. Accepted papers will be published in Newfoundland and Labrador Studies Vol 38 No. 1 (2023).
