Call for Papers: Radicalism

Beginning in 2021, each issue of the MHR will focus on a specific theme connected with Massachusetts history, although the essays need not be limited to Massachusetts or New England topics. The publication of this first volume of the new series will coincide with the centennial of the Sacco-Vanzetti murder trial and focus on the theme of radicalism. See the full Call for Papers for details.
