Journal of Appalachian Studies

The Journal of Appalachian Studies is a refereed, multidisciplinary publication which provides a written forum for quality scholarship on Appalachian history, culture, and society. The journal, published two times per year by the University of Illinois Press, with support from Marshall University, is the official journal of the Appalachian Studies Association. 

The journal publishes rigorous work by scholars, teachers, activists, and others that is about the Appalachian region. Topics include, but are not limited to, activism, arts, economics, education, environment, ethnicity, gender, government, labor, literature, LGBTQIA+ studies, migration, politics, race, religion, and women's studies. The current editor invites scholarship which compares Appalachia to other regions in the world and places it in a critical, global context.
