Journal of the North End Historical Society – Call for Papers

The inaugural issue of the Journal of the North End Historical Society is issuing a call for papers. The Journal is multi-disciplinary and accepts submissions on a wide range of topics including history, geography, sociology, statistics, biography, and architecture, as well as state-of-the-field essays, book reviews, reviews of films, museum exhibitions, and Web sites.

• Portuguese in the North End
• Sacco and Vanzetti
• Gentrification and Urban Renewal
