The Journal of American Ethnic History is changing platforms for current content.

The Journal of American Ethnic History is changing platforms for current content! Our publisher, the University of Illinois Press, has contracted with the Scholarly Publishing Collective to host the most recent issues. Older issues on a three-year moving wall will still be available on JSTOR. Members can go to https://order.press.uillinois.edu/jaeh/access.html to access all issues of JAEH. Check out the Winter 2022 issue on the SPC platform to see the features the new platform offers. To promote the move, content will be available for free to all viewers through 28 February 2022, and then full content will only be available to subscribers after that.

The panel will also examine what it means to identify as APIDA online, and how different digital spaces have been shaped by the community. Finally, the panel’s experts will offer practical advice on building digital archives, exhibitions, and other projects, in the name of interpreting and analyzing the APIDA experience in all its diversity.
